    Karti Chidambaram was arrested earlier this week by the CBI. He was on Thursday remanded in CBI custody till March 5. Chidambaram had said that it was he who had initiated the probe against INX Media following a specific complaint.

    It has been alleged by the CBI that Karti had used the office of his father to get the Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance to the INX Media. The Enforcement Directorate in a report had also stated that during a meeting between Indrani and Peter Mukerjea with Chidambaram he had asked them to help his son's business.
