INX Media Case: Court extends judicial custody of Indrani Mukherjea

06 March 2018

Upon reaching the Byculla Central jail, Karti was made to face Indrani and Peter Mukerjea, co-accused in the money laundering case.

Both Indrani and Peter are incarcerated in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai after they were arrested for the murder of Indrani's daughter Sheena Bora in 2012. The interrogation ended around 3 pm and Karti was taken straight to the airport and flown to Delhi around 5 pm. They applied "tilak" and gave candies to Karti on Holi morning.

Earlier, CBI interrogated Karti Chidambaram in front of Indrani Mukerjea in Byculla jail. Karti was arrested nine months after the CBI registered an FIR against him on charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating, accepting gratification by corrupt or illegal means, influencing public servants and criminal misconduct.

The audience of senior officials and lawmakers broke into applause, giving him a standing ovation at one point. Yet, it is increasingly clear that U.S. -Russia relations are entering into a new cooling period.

The doors of the prison were shut for the duration of the questioning and none from outside was allowed to enter the premises.

Sources said that the entire quizzing was being recorded by the CBI.

The CBI team came out of the prison around 3.15 pm and a Karti Chidambaram waved again with a defiant gesture at the media persons while standing on the footboard of a vehicle being used by the agency.

A&E Staff were evacuated to a nearby building to establish a triage centre while the facility was closed for decontamination. He and a woman, 33, were found unconscious in a shopping center in Salisbury, south-west England, on Sunday.

According to Indrani's statement, a deal of Dollars 1 million was made between Karti and the Mukerjeas to swing FIPB approval in favour of INX Media. Karti has challenged the summons on the ground that the ED has no jurisdiction to issue such notices based on the FIR lodged by the CBI. Karti had been playing hide and seek game with agencies forcing the CBI to issue Look Out Circular (LOC) against him in October 2017. One of the conditions imposed by the court was that he should appear before the CBI immediately on his return and co-operate with the investigation. The amount was allegedly transferred from Karti's account (No.397990) in five installments between January 16, 2006 and September 23, 2009.

In 2007, the company was run by Indrani and Peter Mukerjea. He is facing a probe for his alleged role in facilitating the FIPB's clearance for INX Media when his father, P Chidambaram, was the Union Finance Minister.

The documents indicated payments made to Karti's alleged company Advantage Strategy by INX Media at the time it received FIPB approval.
