INX Media case ED conducts raids at Chidambaram Karti's premises in Delhi Chennai
The reactions from the Congress came shortly after the Enforcement Directorate officials conducted a raid on former union minister P Chidambaram's son Karti's homes in Delhi and Chennai in connection with the Aircel-Maxis case.
The agency's action invited strong reaction from Chidambaram who questioned the jurisdiction of the agency to investigate a matter related to Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2000. According to initial reports, the raids which are being conducted in Delhi and Chennai are in relation to the Aircel-Maxis case. In today's search, the ED was embarrassed and apologetic that I live here. No FIR has been filed so far over the crime that they claim we did and they do not have proof over anything. The agency had raided properties of Karti's close aides in Chennai and Kolkata on December 1.
Previously in September 2017, denying he held undisclosed assets abroad, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram on Monday told the Supreme Court that the Centre should disclose any overseas assets held by him or his family and seize them.
"They have searched premises in Chennai again, but in a comedy of errors they came to search my premises in Jor Bagh", Mr. Chidambaram said.
"They searched and found nothing but since they had to justify themselves they took papers of a statement made by government in the Parliament, few years back".
The CBI alleged that Karti Chidambaram received money from INX Media for using his influence to manipulate a tax probe against it in a case of violation of FIPB conditions to receive investment from Mauritius. "The circumstances of the said FIPB approval granted by the then finance minister (P Chidambaram)", the agency had said about its investigating.
Following the FIPB clearance, the INX Media said it had received foreign direct investment (FDI) of Rs4.62 crore, but actually received Rs305.36 crore between August 2007 and May 2008, the ED said. It charged that Karti had also closed certain bank accounts and attempted to close other bank accounts in order to frustrate the process of attachment under the PMLA.
The FIPB approval was supposed to go to the Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs but Chidambaram senior allegedly approved it on his own and the amount for FIPB clearance was wrongly projected to hide facts. "However, approval was not obtained from CCEA", it alleged.
