The Enforcement Directorate (ED) recently issued a summon to Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P Chidamabram.
Karti has been summoned in relation to the money laundering case in the Aircel-Maxis deal of the infamous 2G scam.
He was director in two of the identified firms Advantage Strategic Consulting Private Limited and Chess Global Advisory Services Pvt Ltd.
ED has given Karti a week to either be present in person or through an authorised representative.
He has also been asked to submit his personal financial documents within this week.
Though the case has been in news since last year, this is the first time a notice has been sent to Karti. Krati has reportedly already replied to the summon and sought more time to comply.
Karti, along with few others, have been accused of violations under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Over the months Karti has denied any wrongdoing and his father P Chidambaram had even accused the current government of launching a “malicious onslaught” against his family.
