A Delhi court on Monday (Feb 18) extended interim protection from arrest to P Chidambaram and his son Karti till March 8 in Aircel-Maxis cases.
The court extended the protection of arrest after being informed that Karti has been asked by Enforcement Directorate (ED) to appear before it on March 5, 6, 7 and 12 for questioning in cases related to Aircel-Maxis.
Investigating agencies CBI and ED have both filed chargesheet against the father, son and 18 others in the case. Both the agencies are probing how Karti managed to get permission from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for the Aircel-Maxis deal in 2006 when his father was the Union Finance Minister.
