Congress leader and former Union Minister P. Chidambaram today moved a Delhi court seeking anticipatory bail in the Aircel-Maxis case. Special CBI Judge OP Saini will hear the matter later today.
Chidambaram and his son Karti were named in a chargesheet filed by the CBI in the case last week. The agency had filed its supplementary chargesheet before the special judge, who had fixed it for consideration on 31st this month.
The Congress leader’s role came under the scanner of investigating agencies in the Aircel-Maxis deal of Rs. 3,500 crore and the INX Media case involving Rs. 305 crore.
The Enforcement Directorate is also probing a separate money laundering case in the Aircel-Maxis case in which Chidambaram and Karti have been questioned by the agency.
