In INX Media case, next up for questioning is P Chidambaram
Next up is P Chidambaram. After his son, Karti Chidambaram was arrested and questioned by the CBI in connection with the INX Media case, the CBI has indicated that it would soon question Chidambaram, the former union minister.
When the officer was asked when he would be questioned, he informed that it could be in the next 15 days. The CBI is currently questioning Karti in connection with the case. On Tuesday the court extended Karti's CBI custody by three days.
The CBI is yet to involve Chidambaram in the case. In the wake of fresh allegations and facts, it has decided that it would soon question Chidambaram.
The CBI is also relying on a statement by INX promoter, Indrani Mukerjea who had said that she had met with Chidambaram. She had alleged that during the meeting the then minister had asked her to help his son's business. Her statement has been corroborated with other material fats such as payments allegedly received by Karti's company.
