Money laundering case: ED raids Karti Chidambaram's premises in Chennai, Delhi

The sleuths of Enforcement Directorate conducted raids at the premises of senior Congress leader P.Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram in Chennai and Delhi this morning. They found nothing, they seized nothing. He has now been called by the agency on Tuesday, January 16.

The agency's action invited strong reaction from Chidambaram who questioned the jurisdiction of the agency to investigate a matter related to Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2000.

The case pertains to the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval granted in 2006 by the then finance minister P Chidambaram.

However, according to a leading daily, the raiding officials while speaking on searches being conducted at Karti Chidambaram's premises said that they are investigating the circumstances of the said FIPB approval granted by the then finance minister P Chidambaram. Sources said, four properties were searched in Chennai and one in the national capital.

The Central probe agency had, on December 1 2017, conducted similar searches on the premises of a relative of Mr. Karti and others in this case.

A six-member team from the ED conducted search operations at Chidambaram's house on Haddows Road, Nungambakkam.

The Chidambarams have denied all the charges made against them.

Apart from this, his son, Karti Chidambaram's house and office in Chennai and Delhi were searched by the Enforcement Directorate.

Reacting to the raid, Congress party's chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala lashed out at the government calling it a vendetta.

The FIPB approval was granted in "hundreds of cases", the senior Congress leader had said. "Everyday PM Modi and his government use ED and CBI as captive puppets to seek revenge from opposition" he said.

Arun Natarajan, Counsel for Karti, told reporters that the searches were held in connection with the Aircel-maxis case.

During the filing of the report, the raid was on-going.

The former Union finance minister said the Supreme Court had issued notices to the ED in cases filed by Karti on the ground that the agency had no jurisdiction over offences under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
