New Delhi:

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday issued summon notice to Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in Aircel Maxis case. The CBI has asked Karti Chidambaram to appear before it on Thursday.

Earlier on August 28, the CBI grilled Karti Chidambaram for 7 hours in a corruption case of alleged clearance to INX Media Pvt Ltd owned by Peter Mukerjea and his wife Indrani for bringing foreign funds into their Venture.

The agency is examining him in connection with a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance given to media group INX Media for receiving funds from Mauritius when his father P Chidambaram was the Union finance minister.

The sources said a firm “indirectly controlled” by Karti received money from INX Media, run by the Mukerjeas, who are currently in jail, charged with the murder of Indrani’s daughter.

The CBI had also questioned Karti on August 23.
