The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has sent a second notice to Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, on Wednesday. The notice was sent to Karti to summon him to the CBI headquarters on July 21 for questioning regarding the INX Media Case.
This is the second time the CBI has sent a notice to Karti. Earlier, the CBI had summoned Karti between 27 June and 29 June, but Karti, through his lawyers, informed the investigating team that he needs more time before he can appear for questioning.
According to the CBI, INX Media stated in its records that an amount of Rs 10 lakh was given to Advantage Strategic Consulting (P) Limited, a firm the CBI said was “indirectly” owned by Karti, for management consultancy charges towards an FIPB notification and clarification
