"Give Another 10 Crores": Court On Karti Chidambaram's Plea To Go Abroad
Karti Chidambaram, son of former finance minister P Chidambaram, will have to pay a second security deposit of Rs. 10 crore - above a previous deposit of the same amount - if he wants to go abroad, the Supreme Court said today. The father son-duo is under investigation for alleged wrongdoing in securing foreign investment worth crores when P Chidambaram was a union minister in the UPA government.
Karti Chidambaram had asked for permission from the Supreme Court to fly to the US, Germany and Spain this month to attend meetings of a tennis association. He is contesting the Lok Sabha election on a Congress ticket from Tamil Nadu's Sivaganga, where voting took place on April 18.
