NEW DELHI,

THE Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday conducted searches at ten premises linked to Karti Chidambaram, including the residence of his father and Congress leader P Chidambaram in Delhi, in connection with its money laundering probe in the Aircel-Maxis case. The raids were initiated early morning in nine premises in Chennai and at the Jorbagh residence of senior Chidambaram in south Delhi, official sources said.


Those searched include a chartered accountant linked to Karti, his personal assistant and Karti’s residence at Thousand Lights area in Chennai, they said.
The sources said that certain “incriminating” documents have been seized during the raids.


P Chidambaram termed the raids against his son “a comedy of errors” and claimed the officers were left “embarrassed” and “apologetic” as they could not find anything at his house.
He was speaking to media persons outside his Jorbagh residence here. The central probe agency had, on December 1 last 0year, conducted similar searches on the premises of a relative of Karti and others in this case.
