Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram is being questioned by the CBI in INX Media money laundering case. He reached CBI headquarters in New Delhi this morning.
CBI had summoned him last month to appear before it today. His questioning is in connection with alleged irregularities in the clearance of foreign investment in INX media. The Congress leader was called last month for the questioning in the case but he sought another date to comply with the CBI notice.
Chidambaram’s alleged role has come under the scanner of investigating agencies in connection with the Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance of 305 crore rupees given to INX media during the UPA rule. Chidambaram’s son Karti was arrested in the case.
