CBI reaches UK, Swiss for information about INX Media

CBI has reached out to five nations to gain information and bank details in connection to INX Media in which former finance and home minister P Chidambaram is currently being quizzed.

The countries which are being contacted are United Kingdom, Switzerland, Bermuda, Singapore and Mauritius.

P Chidambaram is alleged to have played important role in helping the INX Media gain access of Rs 305 from foreign funds under the UPA government in 2007.

The route of letters rogatory sent to foreign countries was earlier adopted on several occasions like in the case of fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said in the Supreme Court on behalf of CBI and ED that custodial interrogation of P Chidambaram was required to unravel transactions made through shell companies.

Mehta said it is a case of monumental money laundering. He claimed ED has collected several evidences to prove the senior Congress leader bought properties in the country as well as abroad.

Meanwhile, the apex court has granted to P Chidambaram an interim protection from arrest in relation to the case.
