The Enforcement Directorate has moved a Delhi court seeking their permission to question the jailed INX media director Indrani Mukerjea in a money laundering case against her and others including Karti Chidambaram, son of former minister P Chidambaram which has created nationwide roar when it was unearthed.
The ED, in its application moved before special judge Sunil Rana, has sought the issuance of production warrant against Mukerjea, currently facing trial in Mumbai in connection with the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora which is another high profile case which also involved her husband who headed a MNC media channel earlier before moving out to head 9XM Channel.
The department with the help of CBI has already sent “lookout circulars” to all the airports to ensure that he did not escape from India to any foreign destination considering the nature of the case but has been criticised by him saying that it is a political vendetta by the ruling BJP Govt that has been initiated to bring disregard and bad name to his father and said that he would face them all in the court.
The central probe agency has told the court, that Mukerjea, currently lodged in a Mumbai jail, was required to be questioned in connection with the money laundering case. The case is likely to come for hearing on August 8th.
A lawyer associated with the money laundering matter said that the ED has registered the case against Karti Chidambaram, INX media and its directors, Peter and Indrani and others, after taking cognisance of a recent CBI FIR that was filed and is expected to go in a fast pace.
