- P SUCHETANA RAY

NEW DELHI: The En­force­ment Direc­torate (ED) on Tues­day is­sued fresh sum­mons to Karti Chi­dambaram, son of Congress leader P Chi­dambaram, ask­ing him to ap­pear be­fore it on Jan­uary 18 in con­nec­tion with its probe into the al­leged money laun­der­ing in INX Me­dia case.

The sum­mons were is­sued af­ter Karti sent his rep­re­sen­ta­tive to ap­pear be­fore the agency for ques­tion­ing on Tues­day.

“The first sum­mons was is­sued for Jan­uary 11. Even then his rep­re­sen­ta­tive had come. We need more ques­tions an­swered and so have is­sued fresh sum­mons for Jan­uary 18,” an agency of­fi­cial said.

The case per­tains to al­le­ga­tions that Karti was bribed by INX Me­dia for us­ing his in­flu­ence to ma­nip­u­late a tax probe against the com­pany. The tax case per­tains to al­le­ga­tions of vi­o­la­tions by INX Me­dia while re­ceiv­ing for­eign in­vest­ment. The ED had filed the case in May 2017 against Karti, INX Me­dia, and its di­rec­tors Peter and In­drani Muk­er­jea.
