After the court passed the order Tuesday, the ED sought the court’s permission to question him in some space available in Rouse Avenue court premises. But the court told ED that “it’s not of the dignity of this person that you interrogate and arrest him here in public view”.
Karti Chidambaram, son of Congress senior leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram, appeared before the the Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday in connection with the probe into the INX Media laundering case.
Granting his custody to the CBI, special CBI judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar directed that Chidambaram be allowed to meet his family members and lawyers for half-an-hour everyday, and that he be medically examined every 48 hours.
Taking to Twitter, Karti wrote, "There is no officer who has the courage to close a file stating that there is no case, when there is no case. Neverending investigations is the tool and method of harassment. The drama and spectacle being enacted by the agencies are to simply sensationalise and satisfy the voyeuristic pleasure of some."
