The ED official conducted multiple searches in relation to Karti Chidambaram in connection with money laundering probe on the Aircel-Maxis case.

Following the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) raids on the premises of his son Karti Chidambaram, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram questioned the jurisdiction of the agency to investigate a matter related to Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2000. "I anticipated they'll search premises in Chennai again but in a comedy of errors they came to Jor Bagh (in Delhi) & officers told me that they thought Karti is an occupant of this house but he is not".

"Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued notice on the cases filed by my son Karti Chidambaram".

He also said this was not an enquiry but just a raid, and kept emphasising that nothing was found or seized. The agency had raided properties of Karti's close aides in Chennai and Kolkata on December 1. And then in 2017, the money laundering case has been lodged by the ED against Karti along with two others. However, Mr Karti's lawyer has said the Directorate has taken possession of no document during the search.

According to sources, the ED officials reached there at 7.30 a.m.

The Congress leader further said that there was no FIR concerning a scheduled crime by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or any agency. There were about five officials at their residence.

Following the FIPB clearance, INX Media said it had received Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of Rs 46.20 million, but actually received Rs 3,053.60 million between August 2007 and May 2008, the ED said.

The FIPB approval was supposed to go to the Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs but Chidambaram senior allegedly approved it on his own and the amount for FIPB clearance was wrongly projected to hide facts. In 2011, Aircel's former head, C Sivasankaran, complained to the CBI that he was being forced by the then Telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran to sell Aircel to the Malaysia-based Maxis Communications group. Karti Chidambaram is accused of facilitating bribes in the Aircel-Maxis transaction.
