Karti refuses to appear before CBI in Aircel Maxis case

| | New Delhi

Challenging the jurisdiction of the CBI, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s son Karti on Thursday refused to appear before the agency in the Aircel Maxis case. In his letter, Karti argued that the 2G special court had discharged all the accused and terminated proceedings in the matter, so the CBI has no right to call him. Reacting to Karti’s claims, CBI said that investigation on Aircel-Maxis is still going on and their summon notice is valid.

Karti, through his lawyer, has refused to appear before the agency saying a special court had discharged “all the accused” in the matter. “All proceedings connected with the said (case)... Were also terminated,” the response

said.

The CBI strongly contradicted claims of Karti saying only four, including two companies, of the eight chargesheeted accused were discharged by the special court and the agency has already filed an appeal against the order in the Delhi High Court in May this year.

“FIR RC-22(A)/2011-DLI has not been quashed by the court and further investigation under 173(8) of the CrPC is continuing,” said CBI Spokesperson Abhishek Dayal.

“Court proceedings are still pending. Request has been placed before the Interpol for issuance of Red Notices against the two Malaysian nationals,” Dayal said, adding that all the options are open before them in the matter.
