Karti Chidambaram, the son of senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram, on Thursday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with its probe into the INX Media money laundering case.
He was summoned by the agency to appear before the Investigating Officer (IO) of the case. His authorised representative had met the IO on the last two occasions and the central probe agency had subsequently asked him to appear personally. It is understood that the agency wants to put questions directly to Mr. Chidambaram and hence wanted him to depose in person.
The ED registered a case against him and others in May last year.
It had registered an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR), the ED’s equivalent to a police FIR, against the accused named in a CBI complaint, including Mr. Chidambaram, INX Media and its directors, Peter and Indrani Mukerjea.The ECIR was lodged under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).The sources said that the ED is probing the alleged “proceeds of crime” generated in this case.
