Enforcement Directorate quizzes PC in Aircel-Maxis case

P Chidambaram

Former finance minister P Chidambaram was on Tuesday questioned for the first time by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case.

Chidambaram was quizzed for about five-six hours in two sessions during the day in connection with the case in which his role as finance minister in the UPA-I regime in granting Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval in the Aircel-Maxis proposal has come under the scanner.

“Appeared before the ED. The questions were about what is already recorded in the file. Hence, answers too were what is recorded in the file. More than half the time taken up by typing the answers without errors, reading the statement and signing it! Need to reiterate there is no FIR, no offence alleged, yet there is an investigation,” Chidambaram later remarked in a series of tweets.
