Chidambaram of black money, ED summons to Karti, Money laundering probe, Aircel-Maxis deal, 2G scam, CBI Probe


ED has issued summons to Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P Chidamabram, in connection with its money laundering probe in the Aircel-Maxis deal of the 2G scam.

Officials said the agency had issued a notice to Karti to present himself in person or through an authorised representative and submit personal financial documents and those related to a firm this week.

This is the first time that a notice has been issued to Karti in the case which is being investigated since last year.



ED’s questioning will be as part of a government investigation into how telecom firm Aircel was sold to a Malaysian giant named Maxis. The sale and foreign investment was cleared by the Finance Ministry, which was headed by Mr Chidambaram. Karti Chidambaram has reportedly informed investigators that he is abroad and needs time to organize the documents they have requested.
