Mumbai : Jailed murder convict and media baron Indrani Mukherjea on Thursday expressed her happiness over former finance minister P Chidambaram’s arrest in the INX Media case in which she turned approver last year.
“I am happy that Chidambaram is arrested. I have been closely watching the developments,” Mukherjea on trial for allegedly murdering her daughter Sheena Bora, said. Mukherjea added that she hoped for the cancellation of Karti Chidambaram’s pre-arrest bail.
Indrani Mukherjea recorded her statement which was much needed breakthrough in the INX media case which then helped CBI to nail P Chidambaram. The case pertains to alleged irregularities in the FIPB clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when Chidambaram was the Union finance minister in the UPA-1 government.
Mukherjea had spilled the beans on the deal allegedly involving Karti Chidambaram while recording her statement before a magistrate in February last year, including that he had allegedly taken bribes from her.
