Court allows CBI to quiz Indrani Mukerjea in INX Media case
Special Judge Sunil Rana sent Mukerjea to two-day custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) when she was presented in court in pursuance of a production warrant against Indrani Mukerjea
New Delhi: A court in New Delhi on Monday allowed the CBI to quiz till February 7 former media baron Indrani Mukerjea in connection with the INX Media case.
Special Judge Sunil Rana sent Mukerjea to two-day custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) when she was presented in court in pursuance of a production warrant against her.
She will be quizzed in the case allegedly involving Karti Chidambaram, son of former Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram.
On May 15 last year, the CBI had registered a FIR against Karti Chidambaram on charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating, accepting gratification by corrupt or illegal means, influencing public servants and criminal misconduct.
Karti Chidambaram allegedly received Rs 3.5 crore from Mumbai-based INX media, now 9X Media, for helping it get Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance, when it was run by Peter and Indrani Mukerjea, both accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.
The FIR does not mention Chidambaram senior, though it said he cleared the FIPB approval for Rs 4.62 crore Foreign Direct Investment in the firm at an FIPB meeting on May 18, 2007.
The accused have denied the charges against them.
