  • Karti leaves for London amidst CBI probe

The documents recovered by Enforcement Directorate during its probe against former finance minister P Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram and his front companies reveal that Padma Bhaskararaman, wife of Karti's close aide S Bhaskararaman, was made a promoter and director on record of Advantage Strategic Consulting Pvt Ltd (ASCPL) to hide the real identity of people controlling the business.

Sources said that Karti boarded the London flight at 5.30 am.

Now, ED is preparing to launch a money laundering probe against Karti Chidambaram on the basis of the CBI FIR.

The ECIR has been registered under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), they said.

The CBI registered an FIR against Karti Chidambaram, Indrani and Peter Mukerjea over the charges of cheating, receiving illegal gratification, criminal conspiracy, criminal misconduct and influencing public officials.

She's qualified for the Wimbledon qualifying rounds but can still be handed a wild card when the decision is made on June 20. Regardless of the rhetoric, the fact is, the 2-time champion Sharapova will not be at the French Open this year.


An investigation was initiated against both father and son related to the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearances given to INX Media.

According to a CBI official, "We have information that Karti has a number of such shell companies operating out of Kolkata". Such a case will also open doors for ED to possibly attach assets in the case.

The CBI had also recovered vouchers of Rs 10 lakh which were allegedly paid for the services. "I will be back soon", Karti had told CNN-News18. Although a chunk of the raids were conducted in Chennai, Delhi and Gurgaon, the agency is hot on the trail of the city's shell companies due to Karti's alleged involvement in routing crores of rupees through them.

These vouchers were issued in favour of Advantage Strategic Consulting (P) Limited, a firm "indirectly" owned by Karti, the CBI had alleged.

Slamming the government over the raids, senior Congress leader, P Chidambram said, "The government, using CBI and other agencies, is targeting my son and his friends".
