    He said that his arrest was malafide in nature and he had travelled abroad with the permission of the Madras High Court. He further said that he was being targeted because he is the son of a politician.

    "The CBI has misrepresented the facts of my visits abroad. I went abroad with the permission of the court and I have not got any summons since my return", he said.
