Supreme Court allows Karti Chidambaram to travel abroad this month

The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Congress leader Karti Chidambaram, who is facing criminal cases that are being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED)and the CBI, to travel to the U.S., Germany and Spain this month.

A Bench comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna said this nod was subject to compliance of conditions imposed earlier.

In January, the court granted Mr. Karti, son of senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram, permission to travel abroad after depositing ₹10 crore with the secretary general of the court.

It had also asked him to file an undertaking that he would return and cooperate with the investigation.

One of the cases he faces relates to the Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance to INX Media for receiving foreign funds of ₹305 crore when his father was the Union Finance Minister.
