In a recent development in the INX Media case, the Enforcement Directorate moved before a Delhi court seeking production warrant against the former finance minister, P Chidambaram on Friday.

ED said in its plea to the court that it requires custodial interrogation of Chidambaram in the case.

He had earlier plead the court seeking to surrender in the ED case, which was dismissed by the court.

Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta representing ED in the case told the court that Chidambaram’s custodial interrogation is required as the agency wants to seek information related to the company from him.

Chidambaram is currently in Tihar jail in connection with the INX Media case lodged by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The former union minister is booked for alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance given to the INX Media.
