Karti Chidambaram questioned for 10 hours in INX media case

Prime News, National (New Delhi), January 19:- Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, was questioned for about 11 hours by officials of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the INX Media money laundering case on Thursday.
Karti Chidambaram was summoned by the agency to appear before the Investigating Officer (IO) of the case on Thursday.

Official sources said Karti Chidambaram was asked a number of questions on his role in the case and his statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
He arrived at the ED office here around 11:30 am and left after 10:30 pm.
Karti Chidambaram’s authorised representative had met the IO of the case on the last two occasions and the central probe agency had then asked him to appear in person.
The central probe agency had registered a case against him and others in May last year.
It had registered an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR), the ED’s equivalent of a police FIR, against the accused named in a CBI complaint, including Karti 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. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
