Karti Chidambaram's premises being raided by ED in Chennai and Delhi

Karti Chidambaram's premises being raided by ED in Chennai and Delhi

The Enforcement Directorate on Saturday searched properties linked to Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, in connection with its money laundering probe into the Aircel-Maxis deal case.

The former Finance Minister said the Supreme Court had issued notices to the ED in the cases filed by Karti on the ground that the agency had no jurisdiction over offences under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Sources say that the ED made a decision to conduct the raids since Karti failed to appear before the agency on 11 January as per the summons they had sent him.

Chidambaram claimed the CBI and the ED had searched Karti's residence in Chennai thrice so far but had found nothing there.

The former finance minister said that the ED officials searched the place "including the kitchen and the bathroom and obviously they found nothing".

The ECIR was lodged under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Police personnel were posted at the Nungambakkam residence of P Chidambaram following an ED raid.

Fortunately, that's not the case at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London, according to chief medical officer Dr. That includes CT , which has seen five deaths associated with flu thus far.

"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. I recorded that. Obviously they found nothing. The raids have come after December 1, 2017, raids which were conducted on the premises of Karti Chidambaram's relative and other people associated with him.

"Since they had to justify the search, they took some background papers related to a statement made by the government in Parliament in 2012-13". He also said this was not an enquiry but just a raid, and kept emphasising that nothing was found or seized.

Surjewala also said that Prime Minister Modi and his government use the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as "captive puppies". In today's search, they thought Karti lives here.

The case pertains to alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board approvals INX Media obtained in 2007 to receive funds worth Rs 305 crore from overseas.

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 ED also alleged that Karti has "disposed" of a property in Gurgaon, which he had allegedly rented out to a multinational company "to whom foreign direct investment (FDI) approval had been granted in 2013".
