The agency has alleged that Karti received money from INX Media, using his influence to manipulate a tax probe against it in a case of violation of Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) conditions to receive investment from Mauritius, reported PTI.

It registered a PMLA case in May 2017 to probe the issue. 

Chidambaram has been asked to appear before the financial probe agency on February 8.
