CBI wants narco analysis on Karti Chidambaram, appeals to SC

Karti to spend three more days in CBI custody

Arguing that police custody was an exception and not the rule, he stated that CBI did not necessarily need to keep him in custody to interrogate him. He was arrested last week and has since remained in CBI custody.

The Special CBI court on March 9 will hear arguments on Karti's bail plea, his narco test, and on production warrant requests.

The ED's special public prosecutor Nitesh Rana had earlier told the court that during the course of an investigation, it was revealed that Bhaskararaman had been assisting Karti to manage his "ill-gotten wealth" in India and overseas.

"Names of a few more companies have surfaced yesterday only and for this objective further custody remand is required".

CBI wants to conduct narco test on Karti Chidambaram, in connection with the INX Media case. The outcome of such tests is not an admissible piece of evidence in courts.

Buhari visits Taraba, Benue, Yobe, Zamfara and Rivers States
The Nation newspaper said that Buhari has promised that Nigeria must never return to the dark days of import dependence. The then-president, Goodluck Jonathan, was heavily criticised for his slow response to the kidnapping.

He said Karti Chidambaram had refused to share his phone password with his interrogators which "is also a proof" that he was not cooperating. He added that he was refusing to answer even basic questions.

The CBI has maintained that Mukerjea, also an accused in the case, had told a magistrate that Chidambaram junior met her in a hotel in Delhi and asked for a bribe of $1 million for helping INX Media get FIPB clearance.

He contended that the agency had submitted no new ground why it wanted extension of the remand. An officer claimed that the CBI was hoping to get the password of three mobile phones found on Karti's premises a year ago.

Karti Chidambaram has been accused of having received Rs10 lakh in kickbacks in 2007 to clear foreign investment worth Rs305 crore for INX Media, which was owned by Peter and Indrani Mukerjea, at a time when P. Chidambaram was finance minister under the first United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

The arrest of Karti came nine months after the CBI registered an FIR against him on charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating, accepting gratification by corrupt or illegal means, influencing public servants and criminal misconduct.
