Chennai : The Chennai and Delhi homes of former Union minister P Chidambaram was raided by a team of Enforcement Directorate today. The raid – which took place when both Mr Chidambaram and his son Karti were out of town — was in connection with the money laundering investigation in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case, reported news agency PTI. Mr Chidambaram has questioned the agency’s jurisdiction to investigate the matter.
The former Union minister said the raids were a reaction to the notices sent out by the Supreme Court, which heard the appeal of his son yesterday. Karti Chidambaram, a 46-year-old businessman and Congress member, had questioned the cases filed against him by the investigators.
