Karti Chidambaram, son of former union minister, P Chidambaram cannot travel abroad. The Supreme Court said that it would hear the matter and pass orders at 2 pm on September 18.
The Central Bureau of Investigation has alleged that Karti Chidambaram took service charges for getting FIPB clearance when his father P Chidambaram was the union finance minister.
Karti had challenged the look out circular issued by the CBI against him. As a result of this circular, Karti is not allowed to travel abroad.
The CBI while defending the circular said that it has ample evidence to show the properties and accounts that Karti Chidambaram holds abroad. It also accused him of charging service while getting FIPB clearance when his father Chidambaram was the finance minister of India.
The submissions were made by the CBI which probed Karti in the INX media case. Karti Chidambaram arguing through his counsel said that the CBI has claimed that he had properties all across the world.
They also said I have bank accounts abroad. However during the questioning the CBI did not ask me one question about it, he also submitted. The CBI responded by saying, " we have things to show- the jugglery of accounts and properties abroad. The CBI however sought time to furnish the same.
