Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy called the Chidambaram family ‘a family of crooks’ on Saturday. He said that both Karti and his father P Chidambaram belong to Tihar Jail.
“He (Karti) is a crook. He has no proper education, no occupation, how does he have so much wealth? It is all fraud. His father (P Chidambaram) does the illegal act and he (Karti) collects the money,” Swamy told ANI. “Chidambaram’s wife Nalini also does the same. They are all family of crooks and they belong to a family in Tihar jail,” he added.
Earlier, the investigating agency had issued a lookout notice against Karti considering an alleged corruption case against him. The case involving Karti has its basis from 15 May when a FIR filed by CBI against him. CBI alleging that Karti illegally took service charges for getting the FIPB clearance to INX Media at the time his father was the finance minister.
