The Enforcement Directorate on Saturday searched properties linked to Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, in connection with its money laundering probe into the Aircel-Maxis deal case.

As per sources, Chidambaram was present at the Delhi residence when the raids were conducted there. However, the agency made a decision to summon Mr. Karti Chidambaram for recording his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. Nothing was found, nothing was seized. These cases have been filed sometime ago, notices were issued yesterday and the respondents were asked to file their reply if they wish to and the cases posted for hearing on January 30. "It's a comedy of errors that my Chennai residence and Delhi residence have been raided thrice and the ED has found nothing. If the government or its agencies can tell we have these properties, we will execute decrees in their favour and the government can take their possession", Karti Chidambaram told a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra. On December 1 a year ago, the central probe agency had also conducted similar raids on the premises of a relative of Karti and others in the case.

He also added that Prime Minister Modi and his government use ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as "captive puppies".

The Airtel-Maxis case was part of the wider 2G scam that engulfed the UPA regime.

The case is related to a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval granted in 2006 by Chidambaram, who was then the Finance Minister. In 2011, Aircel's former head, C Sivasankaran, complained to the CBI that he was being forced by the then Telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran to sell Aircel to the Malaysia-based Maxis Communications group. Following the FIPB clearance, the INX Media said it had received Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of Rs 46.20 million, but actually received Rs 3,053.60 million between August 2007 and May 2008, the ED said.
