SC allows Karti Chidambaram to travel to U.K, France

The Supreme Court allowed Karti Chidambaram, who is facing criminal cases being probed by the ED and CBI, to travel to the U.K and France for attending a tennis tournament.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S.A Bobde permitted Karti to travel abroad from February 14 to 28 subject to compliance of conditions imposed earlier.

The apex court had earlier allowed Karti, the son of Congress leader P. Chidambaram, permission to travel abroad after depositing Rs 10 crore with the secretary general of the Supreme Court. The top court had also asked him to file an undertaking that he would return and cooperate with the investigation.
