Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram appeared before the Enforcement Directorate today for the second round of questioning in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case. Mr Chidamabarm was first questioned last week.
The officials said, the investigating officer of the case is expected to record the Congress leader’s statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, like the last time. The agency had recorded his statement for six hours on various aspects last time.
Chidambaram’s son Karti has already been questioned by the ED in this case, twice.
The Aircel-Maxis case pertains to grant of Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance to firm M/S Global Communication Holding Services Ltd in 2006 for investment in Aircel.
The Supreme Court had, in March, directed the investigating agencies – CBI and ED – to complete their probe into the 2G spectrum allocation cases, including the Aircel Maxis alleged money laundering case, in six months.
