INX media case: No arrest for Chidambaram till Sep 28

August 1, 2018

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday extended till September 28 the interim protection given to former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case.

Justice A.K. Pathak directed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) not to take any coercive steps against Chidambaram till that date, when the case will come up for hearing again.

On July 25, the court granted interim protection to Chidambaram till August 1 directing him not to leave the country without its permission and to co-operate in the investigation.

The Court was hearing Chidambaram’s anticipatory bail plea in the case.

The ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) are probing how Karti Chidambaram managed to get clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) when his father was in office.

Karti was arrested on February 28 by the CBI for allegedly taking money to facilitate the FIPB clearance to INX Media in 2007 when his father was the Union Finance Minister in the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government. Later, Karti was granted bail.

Karti’s chartered accountant S. Bhaskararaman was also arrested by the ED and he was later granted bail.
