The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is conducting searches in multiple premises, including the offices and residences of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, across Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and other cities.
Around seven premises of the former Union Minister are being searched across the city for a case against his son Karti Chidambaram.
News agency ANI quoted Karti Chidambaram’s office as saying that the CBI was conducting multiple searches in connection with the ongoing case.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reportedly filed a new case against Karti alleging illegal gratification. The agency claimed that the Congress MP had given project visas to a company for a power project in Punjab in 2010-14 in lieu of illegal gratification.
“I lost my count. How many times has it happened? There has to be a record, ”Karti said in a tweet, referring to the cases filed against him by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate.
Karti is already facing multiple cases, including one involving FIPB clearance, to get Rs 305 crore from his father P Chidambaram when he was finance minister.
