Former Union Minister P Chidambaram was questioned in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case by the Enforcement Directorate in New Delhi yesterday.
The agency recorded his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act with some specific queries on the circumstances and procedures adopted by the now-defunct Foreign Investment Promotion Board while giving approval to the Aircel-Maxis deal during his tenure. The ED had issued fresh summons to him to appear before the investigating officer of the case.
The Aircel-Maxis cases pertain to grant of Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance to Global Communication Holding Services Ltd in 2006 for investment in Aircel.
Later in a tweet, Mr Chidambaram said, all the answers he gave to the probe agency were already recorded in government documents.
