NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday filed a supplementary charge sheet against India’s former finance minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti, naming them as accused in the Aircel-Maxis deal case.
The charge sheet was filed before special CBI judge O P Saini who has fixed 31 July for considering the document.
The senior Congress leader’s role had come under the scanner in the ₹3,500 crore Aircel-Maxis deal and the INX Media case involving ₹305 crore.
It was during his tenure as finance minister in the UPA-I government that clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) was granted to the two ventures in which alleged irregularities have been found.
