Delhi court issues production warrant against Chidambaram in INX Media money laundering case

New Delhi: A Delhi court Wednesday issued production warrant against former finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate.

Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar issued the production warrant after the ED informed the court that it has interrogated Chidambaram in Tihar jail, where he is currently lodged in connection with the INX corruption case filed by the CBI, and has arrested him.

The ED has sought 14 day custodial interrogation of the 74-year old senior Congress leader in the INX Media money laundering case.

Advocates Amit Mahajan and N K Matta, appearing for the agency told the court that the ED officials have also recorded the statement of Chidambaram during interrogation.
