New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Wednesday once again refused to allow former Union minister P. Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram, who is facing charges in a graft case, to travel abroad.
Karti is challenging a lookout circular by the Central Bureau of Investigation which stopped him from travelling abroad. The Madras High Court had stayed the circular which the apex court restored within a week.
The court will continue to hear the case on Oct 9.
The case pertains to alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board’s clearance to media house INX Media for foreign direct investment in 2007, when P. Chidambaram was the finance minister.
Arguing for Karti, his lawyer Kapil Sibal argued that CBI has repeatedly talked about Karti’s undocumented overseas assets, but it has never revealed details of assets.
