Karti Chidambram's CA gets bail in INX media case
Delhi Court granted bail to Karti Chidambaram's Chartered Accountant S Bhaskararaman in INX media case on Tuesday. Karti's chartered accountant, S Bhaskararaman, who was currently in jail in a case filed by the ED, had moved the court for anticipatory bail in the CBI case of INX Media.
S Bhaskararaman was arrested from a five-star hotel in Delhi on February 16.
The ED had earlier claimed that during the course of the investigation, it was revealed that Bhaskararaman, a qualified CA, had been assisting Karti to manage his "ill-gotten wealth" in India and abroad.
The CBI took Karti Chidambaram to Tihar jail and confronted him with S Bhaskararaman, who allegedly handled all the business activities and finances of Karti.
