Court grants Karti Chidambaram permission to leave India
January 31, 2019
Karti Chidambaram, India's former Finance Minister's son has been under the scanner in the Aircel-Maxis case. He was even banned by the Supreme Court of India from travelling to abroad locations. On Wednesday, the top court granted Karti the permission to travel abroad and said that the court will take measures if he does not cooperate with the investigation. The court also told him to not play around with the law. This was after Karti requesting the court to travel to Spain, United Kingdom, Germany and France to attend a tennis tournament.
Supreme Court has a time to appeal in God's court for #KartiChidambaram 's #LootoIndia policy but has no time to hear #ShriRamMandir. What a misuse of democracy and democratic institutions by corrupts to enjoy corrupton and Money. This is corrupt Congress culture, drowned #SC- Arun Pandey, Twitter user
Till date, Karti has been uncooperative with the investigations. He faced heavy criticism from the court for that. Now, he is required to be present before the enforcement Directorate on the first week of March.
Karti along with his father P Chidambaram are accused number 1 and 2 in the case which is being investigated jointly by the Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement directorate. The Supreme Court has asked him to deposit Rs 10 crore as security before travelling.
"SC allows #KartiChidambaram to travel abroad for tennis tournos. Asks him to co-operate with ED probe and deposit 10 cr as security. ED wants him on 4 days in March @the_hindu @abaruah64", tweeted Krishnadas Rajagopal, a Twitter user.
