Aircel-Maxis case: Delhi Court to consider charge sheet against Karti on July 6

Patiala:Patiala House Court will consider the charge-sheet filed by Enforcement Directorate (ED) against Karti Chidambaram, in the Aircel Maxis Case, on July 6.

The charge-sheet which was to be considered today has been delayed due to the absence of the concerned judge.

The Aircel-Maxis deal scam, which emerged out of the 2G spectrum case, pertains to a grant by the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) to the firm M/S Global Communication Holding Services Ltd for investment in Aircel.

Karti was arrested on February 28 at Chennai Airport upon his return from the United Kingdom for his alleged role in the case.

The Enforcement Directorate had earlier said that the FIPB approval granted in 2006 by Karti’s father and former Finance Minister Chidambaram was beyond his mandate as he was only authorized to accord approval on project proposals of up to Rs 600 crore. (ANI)
