New Delhi: Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Tuesday extended the interim protection granted to former union minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram till August 7, 2018, in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case.
Last month, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had filed a chargesheet against Karti Chidambaram. Apart from Karti, the agency has also named four others in its chargesheet under section 4 (punishment for money-laundering) of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
The ED mentioned the name of Chidambaram senior at various places in the chargesheet, but he has not been arrayed as an accused in the case. The agency told the court that it may file a supplementary chargesheet in the case.
