CBI Seeks Help From 5 Countries In INX Media Probe: Sources

The CBI has contacted five countries for information on shell companies and bank accounts to identify the manner in which kickbacks were allegedly routed in the INX Media case over ten years ago, sources said.

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram and his son, Karti, are among those accused in the alleged scam involving jailed media baron Indrani Mukerjea’s firm.

According to sources, letters rogatory have been sent to the United Kingdom, Bermuda, Switzerland, Mauritius and Singapore.

This development comes at a time when Mr Chidambaram has been taken into CBI custody for questioning on his alleged role in helping INX Media gain access to foreign funds amounting to Rs 305 crore under the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government in 2007.
