The CBI had also alleged that INX Media had engaged a firm linked to Karti Chidambaram to resolve an issue with the IT dept. The CBI registered its case on May 15, 2017, alleging irregularities in FIPB clearance granted to INX Media for receiving overseas funds of Rs 305 crore in 2007.
CBI submitted: “Secrecy is a pre-requisite of investigation into any offence. Confidentiality and insulation of the investigating agency and its investigation from leaks and disclosures at every stage has to be ensured.”
The Supreme Court of India on Thursday dismissed the review petition filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation seeking cancellation of bail granted to P. Chidambaram by the Court in its earlier order.
