Son of Congress leader and former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram, Karti Chidambaram, today left for London, two days after CBI conducted searches at his premises. Karti, himself a Congress leader, left for London along with a friend, airport sources said.

He flew by an international carrier, they added. The CBI had on Monday registered a case in connection with alleged irregularities in granting the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media, run by its directors Indrani Mukerjea and Peter Mukerjea, in 2007 when P Chidambaram was the finance minister.

The agency had on Tuesday coinducted searches at multiple premises linked to Chidambaram and Karti in connection with the matter.

Karti had alleged “political vendetta” behind the searches and said no documents had been seized from during the raids, insisting he had done nothing wrong.

        Karti Chidambaram allowed to go to London because he has no case against him. The government and CBI are not fool to allow him to go if he is questionable person. He went with a Visa and p a ssport, he did not run away.

          Same excuse was given in case of Mallya, the thief now in London. All these high-flying thieves are rushing to London to escape legal punishment in India. What a great fall for a great city like London. It is now a haven of crooked thieves.

                      He must have been advised by his father to be away from the muck that may smear on his face.
