Lawyers representing Karti Chidambaram have questioned the Enforcement Directorate’s jurisdiction in issuing summons to Karti. “ED does not have unfettered powers to call anyone. We have responded to the summon, seeking the basis for such a move,” a close associate of Karti told Newsd.
Last week, ED had issued a summon to Karti Chidambaram, asking him to appear in person in connection with the ongoing investigations in the Aircel-Maxis case.

In the reply, Karti’s lawyer has sought a response from ED on three grounds: the scheduled offence that is being investigated; the proceeds of crime and proof on how Karti is connected with the proceeds of crime.
