The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today (May 16) raided the Chennai residence of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti. As per reports, the raids are being taken place at around 14 different locations in Chennai. It has been said that the raids have been carried out due to the Aircel Maxis case and are also linked to clearances given to INX media, which was previously owned by Peter Mukerjea. The CBI has raided Karti’s office in the past too, for money laundering charges in connection with the Aircel-Maxis deal.

P Chidambaram, reacting to the raids, said, The CBI is targeting my son and me. They want to silence my voice and stop me from writing.”
