INX Media case: Indrani Mukerjea may be called to appear in-person in Delhi court on hearing


INX Media case: Indrani Mukerjea may be called to appear in-person in Delhi court on hearing

Indrani Mukerjea may be called to appear in-person in Delhi's Patiala House Court on hearing on her plea to become a witness in the INX Media case.

The next date of hearing in the case is February 28.

Indrani Mukerjea, the former head of INX Media, had filed the plea as she was ready to turn an approver.

Mukerjea has been lodged at Mumbai's Byculla jail since her arrest in 2015 for her alleged involvement in her daughter, Sheena Bora's murder case.

Last year, Indrani gave her confessional statement in a Delhi court in connection with the INX Media case and later sent a letter stating to become an approver in the matter.

Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and son Karti are accused in the INX Media case.

On February 3, the Union Law Ministry granted sanction to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to prosecute Chidambaram in connection with the matter, according to Law Ministry sources.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is probing the role of Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case for giving a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to the group in 2007.

The ED probe so far showed that for the FIPB approval, INX Media directors Peter Mukerjea and Indrani Mukerjea met the senior Congress leader so that there was no delay in their application.

The probe agency has attached properties worth Rs 54 crore belonging to Karti, and a firm in the case. It has also attached properties belonging to the Mukerjeas in regard to the same case. (ANI)
