05 July, Chennai
Enforcement Directorate has issued summons to Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P Chidamabram, in connection with its money laundering probe in the Aircel-Maxis deal of the 2G scam.
PTI reports quoting official sources notice was issued to Karti to present himself in person or through an authorized representative and submit personal financial documents and those related to a firm this week.
This is the first time that a notice has been issued to Karti in the case, which is being investigated since last year. The Aircel-Maxis deal is being probed by both ED and CBI and the case is a part of the overall probe in the 2G scam case.
While Karti has denied any wrongdoing and has reiterated his cooperation with probe agencies, his father P Chidambaram had accused the government of launching a “malicious onslaught” against his family.
