A day after the Delhi High Court granted bail to Karti Chidambaram in the INX Media Case, Enforcement Directorate (ED) has opposed his anticipatory bail plea in Aircel Maxis case.
The ED opposed his anticipatory bail plea in Patiala House Court saying that the bail granted will hinder the probe against him.
Accusing Chidambaram of "forum shopping", the ED said, "Karti has approached multiple courts through multiple applications".
The ED opposed the anticipatory bail plea of Karti Chidambaram in Patiala House Court saying that the bail granted will hinder the probe against him.
The ED also asked the court for a three weeks time to file a detailed reply.
The allegation is that then Finance Minister P Chidambaram granted the approval without going to the CCEA. The question is whether the FM’s approval was valid or not.
