A Delhi court Thursday extended interim protection from arrest to Congress leader P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram till November 26 in the Aircel Maxis money laundering case filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The Patiala House Court has fixed the next date of hearing on November 26.

The court had on October 8 extended till November 1 the interim protection to Chidambaram and his son, and scheduled the hearing for today. The ED had yesterday opposed Chidambaram’s anticipatory bail plea and sought custodial interrogation of the former union minister in the money laundering case, alleging that he was not cooperating in the probe and therefore grant of anticipatory bail at this stage would be highly detrimental to the investigation.

The agency said that the investigation pertaining to FIPB approval alleged to be fraudulently granted by Chidambaram has got several dimensions having wide ramifications for which investigation has been concluded to some extent and with regard to certain issues was still going on, reported PTI.

Chidambaram had filed the plea for protection from arrest in the ED case on May 30 this year after which he got relief from the court on various occasions. The agency on October 25 had filed chargesheet against Chidambaram in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case, accusing him of conspiring with foreign investors to clear their venture.
