Indrani Mukerjea will not be tried in the INX Media corruption case involving P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram. A charge-sheet filed by the CBI before a special court in Delhi, listed Indrani as an accused, who has turned approver and pardoned.
It may be mentioned here that a Delhi court in July had accepted Indrani’s plea to turn approver in the INX Media case.
Indrani had claimed that she has paid USD 5 million as bribe to P Chidambaram, who was the Finance Minister at the time. The bribe was paid to allegedly receive foreign investment clearances.
However, the Senior Congress leader has denied ever meeting Indrani Mukerjea and any wrongdoing in the case which he says is politically motivated.
