INX Media Case: SC asks Karti Chidambaram to approach Delhi HC for relief


New Delhi:  The Supreme Court on Thursday asked Karti Chidambaram, son of former finance minister P Chidambaram, to approach the Delhi High Court for interim relief in the INX Media money laundering case.

The court facilitated Karti to withdraw the writ petition against arrest at the hands of the Enforcement Directorate, permitting him to move the Delhi High Court today itself for relief and requesting the high court to hear on Friday his plea for protection against interest, also asking the acting chief justice to allocate the matter to the appropriate bench.

Karti was arrested on February 28 at the Chennai airport on his return from the United Kingdom in connection with the FIR lodged on May 15 last year alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds worth about Rs 305 crore in 2007 when his father P Chidambaram was the Union finance minister.
