INX Media Case
The case in which the former Finance Minister has been arrested involves alleged kickbacks received by his son Karti Chidambaram in exchange for allowing INX Media, a television company, to receive Rs 305 crore as foreign funds in 2007. Delhi High Court’s Justice Sunil Gaur said that his being a Member of Parliament doesn’t affect the case. He has been questioned many times in relation to this case. ED argued that the companies where money was transferred to were controlled by his son.
