Karti Chidambaram, who was raided couple of days back along with his associates for an alleged bribery and corruption case, has left for London on Thurdsay which was described as a scheduled trip by his father P Chidambaram.
“Karti is travelling as per earlier travel plans. He will return after a few days. There is no ban on his travel,” his father P Chidambaram said.
However in the wake of recent scandals that has rocked his family including the alleged involvement in Aircel-Maxis deal, Vasan healthcare deal to name a few, it is still not clear whether Karti has taken the same route like others in the past. Vijay Mallya is in London after having cheated the banks to the tune of several thousands of crores.
Karti who is under the radar of Central Bureau of Investigation faced raids in four cities against the charges that he had received money from a media firm owned by Indrani and Peter Mukerjea to help them evade a tax probe. However Karti has denied all the charges and allegations levelled against him.
