Delhi Court adjourns Aircel-Maxis case against P Chidambaram sine die


NEW DELHI: Delhi court on Friday adjourned Aircel-Maxis case, involving former Union Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti, sine die.


Special Judge O P Saini adjourned the matter without giving any date for further hearing, saying that the prosecution may approach the court as and when the probe is complete.

The order was passed by the court after the Agencies sought an adjournment of six weeks on the ground that response to the Letters Rogatory (LRs) was awaited. The Judge thus added that the Agencies may approach the Court once they receive the LRs from foreign countries.

"Prosecution seeking date after dates. Matter deferred sine die", the court said.

On Thursday, the court had granted anticipatory bail to Chidambaram and his son in the corruption case filed by the CBI as well as in the money laundering matter lodged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in relation to the Aircel-Maxis deal.

CBI and the ED are probing how Karti Chidambaram received clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for the Aircel-Maxis deal in 2006 when his father was Union finance minister.

CBI and the Enforcement Directorate had alleged that the Congress leader, as finance minister during the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime, granted approval to the deal beyond his capacity benefitting certain persons, and received kickbacks.
