The three-judge bench of the Supreme Court asked the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) to reply on Karti Chidambaram’s plea for travelling abroad.
The CBI had initially sought more time to reply to Karti’s plea and the matter was to be adjourned till November 20, 2017. CBI had registered a case against Karti P Chidambaram, son of former finance minister P Chidambaram. They charged him for allegedly interfering and influencing the manner in which the Foreign Investment Promotion Board treated INX Media Private Limited, a company whose directors were Indrani Mukherjea and Pritam ‘Peter’ Mukherjea. The apex court was hearing Karti’s appeal to travel to U.K. for four to five days.
