Feel like I am part of a 007 movie: Karti Chidambaram takes swipe at CBI



I FEEL LIKE I am part of a 007 movie said Karti Chidambaram, son of former union minister P Chidambaram. He was taking a swipe at the Central Bureau of Investigation which told the Supreme Court that he had foreign accounts.
 
Secret/undisclosed accounts/properties. Overseas trips to conceal them etc etc, makes me feel like I am part of a 007 movie, Karti said on Twitter.
 
 
The CBI on Friday told the SC that Karti Chidambaram went abroad to close his foreign accounts.
 
Meanwhile, P. Chidambaram has described the CBI statement in the apex court as an "absolute lie".

"By quoting CBI as the soure, the lie does not become the truth," he said reacting to CBI`s claim in the court during a hearing on the Look Out notice against Karti which he has challenged.
 
The stinging response from the Chidambaram family to the CBI claim came hours after a top government lawyer sought to justify in the Supreme Court a lookout circular issued in July against Karti Chidambaram. Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had told a three-judge bench of the top court that Karti had been going abroad to close his undisclosed bank accounts.
 
Justifying the issuance of a look out circular (LoC) against Karti, the agency also claimed before a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that "shocking" details have emerged during his foreign visits which were directly connected to the FIR lodged in the corruption case.

The CBI FIR, lodged on May 15, had alleged irregularities in Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when Karti's father was the Union Finance Minister.
 
The charge against Karti is he helped get the approvals in return for kickbacks. He has denied the accusation on several occasions. 

His father has long insisted that Karti is being targeted by the NDA government only because he is his son but "the real target is me".

"Why doesn't CBI take my open offer and name the alleged 'undisclosed assets'? the former minister asked after the probe agency's submission in court were reported by the media. "An absolute lie, by quoting CBI, lie doesn't become truth," he said, asking the CBI to reveal the secretly-held assets it could establish.

"I have already made a public statement that my family and I will execute any document necessary to transfer the alleged 'undisclosed asset' to the government so that government can become the owner," the senior Congress leader added.
