Karti Chidambram fails to get relief from SC

New Delhi: An application filed by Karti Chidambram to quash summons issued by ED on the ground that the ED has no jurisdiction to issue such notices based on the FIR lodged by the CBI was rejected by SC.The court has asked ED to file its response by March 8,the next date of hearing.

Kapil Sibal,who appeared for Karti Chidambram pleaded for interim relief against arrest by ED, saying to court on behalf of Karti , "We are willing to co-operate in every way and we also did so. I am worried about my arrest".

The lawyer representing ED said that Karti Chidambaram had transferred Rs 1.8 crore into the bank account of an influential political figure.The name of the political figure was not given as ED felt it could impact investigation.

The CBI told SC it will seek extension of Karti Chidambaram's custody before trial court in INX media corruption case today.

Karti Chidambram is facing multi agency probe for his role in getting regulatory approval for INX -Maxis when his father P Chidambram was the Finance Minister in 2008.
