Clarify on Karti Chidambaram request to go overseas, Supreme Court tells CBI

Clarify on Karti Chidambaram request to go overseas, Supreme Court tells CBI”

The Supreme Court, after perusing CBI's confidential probe report against Karti Chidambaram, said on Thursday that he could be allowed to go overseas for few days and sought response from the agency which expressed apprehension that he might try to tamper with the evidences and might not come back if allowed to go overseas. He has on several occasions sought the court's permission to travel overseas. The allegation is that Karti Chidambaram facilitated this using the agency of his father P. Chidambaram during his tenure as the finance minister.

The court has also asked the CBI to lay out the conditions to be imposed on him if he is allowed to travel so that he does not escape.

The Bench perused the documents submitted by the CBI against Karti in a sealed cover and observed that the prosecuting agency had grievances looking at the past conduct of the respondent.

However, the CBI advocate Tushar Mehta requested Judge to not make the documents public.

Karti's lawyer Kapil Sibal told the apex court that the former was not a "fugitive of justice".

On 10 August, the Madras high court had ruled that the look-out notices issued against Karti Chidambaram and four others were "unwarranted". The court granted CBI one week time to respond and posted the case for hearing to November 16.

It has been alleged that Karti illegally took service charges for getting the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to the INX Media for receiving funds from overseas worth Rs. 305 crore in 2007, when his father P. Chidambaram was the finance minister in Congress-led UPA government.
