The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today questioned former Union Minister P Chidambaram in connection with the INX Media money laundering case, agency officials said.

This is the second time that the senior Congress leader has deposed before the ED in the case. He was earlier questioned in December. Chidambaram, 73, has already been questioned by the ED in the Aircel-Maxis case under the PMLA.

The Congress leader was asked to depose before the investigating officer (IO) to record his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and was given time till Monday, agency officials said.

In November, the Delhi High Court had extended till January 15 the interim protection from arrest granted to Chidambaram on his pleas seeking anticipatory bail in the INX Media case lodged both by the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). At the same time, it had directed him to cooperate with the agencies in the investigation.

The ED has also questioned Chidambaram’s son Karti in the INX Media case and has attached his assets worth around Rs 54 crore, located in India and abroad.
