Defiant Gesture Marks Karti Chidambaram's Exit from Mumbai Jail After Joint
Questioning With Indrani Mukerjea Karti Chidambaram leaves the Byculla Jail
in Mumbai after a joint questioning with Indrani and Peter Mukerjea.

Mumbai: Karti Chidambaram was on Sunday taken to the Byculla prison in
Mumbai and confronted with Indrani Mukerjea as part of the CBI's probe into
the INX Media case.

Karti, the son of senior Congress leader and former Union minister P
Chidambaram, was brought to the jail in central Mumbai around 11.15 am by a
six-member team of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). An official
said Karti and Mukerjea were brought face-to-face and questioned by the CBI
team for about four hours.

Mukerjea, a former director of INX Media (P) Ltd, is lodged in the jail in
connection with the Sheena Bora murder case.

While entering the prison, Karti waved at the media persons who had
assembled outside the high security prison. He and Mukerjea were questioned
by the CBI as a part of its probe in the INX Media deal in which the former
allegedly received kickbacks.

The doors of the prisons were shut and no other person from outside was
allowed to enter the premises when the two were questioned, the official
said.

According to sources, Indrani told the CBI about her meeting with Karti at
Hyatt Hotel in Delhi. She also told CBI about the payments made to Karti
through various channels. According to Indrani, Karti had demanded one
million USD for Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance to INX Media,
but she had paid 7 lakh USD.

Indrani levelled the allegation in presence of Karti, who later denied it
and told the CBI that he never received any payments for any clearance.

The CBI team came out of the prison around 3.15 pm and a Karti Chidambaram
waved again with a defiant gesture at the media persons while standing on
the footboard of a car being used by the agency. He told reporters that
“all allegations against me are false and politically motivated.”

He was arrested by the CBI on February 28 after a confessional statement
was given by Mukerjea before a magistrate. He was sent in a five-day CBI
custody on March 1.

The fresh evidence in the case, which triggered his arrest, was based on
the statement of Mukerjea, who recorded it under section 164 of CrPC before
a magistrate on February 17.

The CBI alleged that Karti Chidambaram also received money from INX media
to scuttle a tax probe. The firm was owned at the time by former media
baron Peter Mukerjea and Indrani, who are currently in jail on charges of
murdering Indrani's daughter Sheena Bora.

The Enforcement Directorate has also registered a money laundering case.

The CBI and the ED had carried out a series of searches at the houses and
offices owned by the Chidambarams. Karti Chidambaram was questioned several
times by the ED.

A Delhi court had on March 1 allowed the custodial interrogation of Karti
Chidambaram by the CBI for five days, saying there was a need to unearth
the larger conspiracy in the INX Media case and his presence would serve
some important purposes connected with the investigation.

The court had said his CBI custody was necessary to confront him with
documents and the co-accused, as well as to probe the role of others
involved in the case.
