  • Aircel-Maxis cases: CBI, ED file status report of investigation against P Chidambaram & his son Karti

    Published on February 15, 2020

    Filing status reports of investigation in the Aircel-Maxis cases involving former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti before a Delhi court, the ED said an active investigation into the matter was going on. The CBI stated that letter rogatory has been sent to Malaysia for which response is awaited.

    Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain, appearing for the probe agencies, submitted the status report of the ED’s investigation in a sealed cover. CBI has already filed its charge sheet in the case.

    The probe agencies were investigating how Karti Chidambaram received clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board for the Aircel-Maxis deal in 2006 when Chidambaram was the Union Finance Minister.

    The CBI and the ED had alleged that P Chidambaram, as finance minister during the UPA rule, granted approval to the deal beyond his capacity benefitting certain persons.
