A Delhi court on Monday took cognisance of the charge sheet filed against former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in the INX Media case. The court asked for the former minister to be presented before it on October 24.
The court also issued summons to all other accused charge-sheeted in the case. However, the date of their appearance will be given later.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday filed a charge sheet in the case against Chidambaram and his son Karti and others.
The charge sheet filed by the agency names 14 accused including Peter Mukerjea, Karti Chidambaram, P. Chidambaram, Karti’s accountant Bhaskar and some bureaucrats.
The agency has also named firms INX Media, Chess Management and ASCL.
P. Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram were named in the case by Peter and Indrani Mukerjea, who are currently in jail in Mumbai in connection with the murder of Indrani’s daughter Sheena Bora.
The ED too had filed a money laundering case against Chidambaram in 2017.
