Aircel-Maxis: Chidambaram’s interim protection extended 13 times

A special court has extended 13 times the interim protection from arrest it granted to former Union Minister P. Chidambaram and 14 times to his son Karti Chidambaram in the Aircel-Maxis deal case, due to consecutive adjournments lasting over a year.

The father-son duo has been enjoying interim protection from arrest by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) which are probing the case despite the agencies opposing this and pressing for their custodial interrogation.

The case relates to a probe into how Karti Chidambaram got clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board for the Aircel-Maxis deal in 2006 when his father was Union Finance Minister.
