INX media case: Karti Chidambaram moves Delhi HC for interim relief
10 March, 2018, 01:48
After the High Court order, Karti can not be arrested by the ED even if the CBI court grants him bail on March 15.
The apex court has also asked the high court to hear the matter on Friday and decide in accordance with law. Karti will be produced in the Delhi High Court since his 3-day CBI custody ends today, though CBI has sought his remand for six more days.
Karit, son of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was arrested on February 28 in connection with the INX media money laundering case. We would request the learned Chief Justice of the High Court to allocate the matter to a Bench that would deal with the matter preferably on 9th March, 2018.
Karti in his plea claimed that he had never attempted to influence witnesses, tamper with documentary evidence, pollute or obstruct the judicial process as was alleged by the probe agency. He shall also be directed not to leave the country and surrender his passport, it said. However, senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, who is the party colleague of P Chidambaram, opposed any further custodial interrogation of Karti.
Additional Solicitor GeneralTushar Mehta, appearing for the ED, contended that the petitioner was abusing the process by invoking writ jurisdiction and trying to obtain interim bail, which can otherwise be sought from the competent court under Section 438 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
At the outset, the Sibal said the ED case was of "political vendetta" and "witch hunting" and so far, Karti has not been given the ECIR copy to know the details of the case.
The ASG said that new incriminating materials have been found and he has to be confronted with them. "It is his constitutional right", Mehta said, adding that the court may quash the proceedings if it so wished, but it should not allow him to withdraw the petition. The CBI had lodged an FIR on 15 May a year ago alleging irregularities in the FIPB clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when P Chidambaram was the Union finance minister. The fresh recovery has been made following Karti's questioning by the CBI.
Besides, Directorate of Enforcement (ED) had registered a money laundering case against Karti in May 2017 for his role in facilitating clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for INX Media Ltd and its Directors, Peter and IndraniMukerjea both accused in the murder of Sheena Bora and others.
