Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, on Thursday moved the Delhi High Court seeking quashing of summons and all proceedings initiated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the INX Media money laundering case. The matter was mentioned in-chamber before Justice S Ravindra Bhat who listed it for hearing tomorrow. 

Karti Chidambaram, who is presently in CBI custody in the INX Media case, moved the high court in pursuance of the Supreme Court direction passed earlier in the day.

The Supreme Court had also allowed him to withdraw his plea pending with the apex court related to the money laundering case. 

Karti Chidambaram had approached the apex court seeking directions to declare that the ED has no jurisdiction to conduct any investigation unrelated to the allegations in the FIR lodged by the CBI on May 15, 2017.

He had also sought the quashing of the summons and all the proceedings initiated by the ED, terming it "unreasonable, without jurisdiction, without authority of law, in colorable exercise of power and vitiated by malafides". 

Karti Chidambaram was arrested on February 28 at the Chennai airport on his return from the UK, in connection with the FIR lodged on May 15 last year alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of about Rs 3 billion in 2007 when his father was the Union finance minister.
