INX Media case CBI seeks custody of Karti's CA joint interrogation of all accused

The matter will now be heard on March 20.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi High court had granted interim protection from arrest by the Enforcement Directorate to Karti till March 20.

Karti was arrested by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on February 28 at Chennai Airport on his return from London in connection with the INX media money laundering case.

The CBI pressed for an extended custody of another six days saying that it needs to confront the accused with fresh material that has emerged in the investigations into the case.

During the three-day remand, the CBI will confront Karti with his Chartered Accountant S Bhaskaraman from whose computers' hard disc the CBI had recovered details of payments to Karti's firms overseas.

It's the same team that nearly fumbled away a spot in the NCAA tournament by losing five straight games to end the regular season. Alabama is trying to reach the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2012. - 17 turnovers are too much for any team.


"Karti Chidambaram on Friday told a Delhi court that the CBI was meting out inhuman treatment" to him in its custody which caused his blood pressure to shoot up.

The fresh evidence in the case, which triggered Karti's arrest, was based on the statement of Indrani Mukerjea, former Director of INX Media (P) Ltd, who recorded it under section 164 of CrPC before a magistrate on February 17. However, defence counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi, opposed any further custodial interrogation of Karti. He said the CD has been sent to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) for examination. Chidambaram and wife Nalini was present during the entire proceedings in the court and judge allowed them 15 minutes of interaction with their son.

In a related development, the Delhi High Court Friday granted interim relief to Karti Chidambaram in connection with the INX media money laundering case.

Karti had approached the apex court seeking direction to declare that the Enforcement Directorate had no jurisdiction to conduct any investigation unrelated to the allegations in the FIR lodged by CBI on May 15, 2017.

Meanwhile, the Congress has alleged that the probe into Karti Chidambaram is a "divisionary tactic" to take the glare away from absconder Nirav Modi and the multi-crore Punjab National Bank scam, and that the government is carrying a vendetta against Congress leaders and their relatives.
