A team of Enforcement Directorate officials on Wednesday reached the Tihar Jail to question former Union finance minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case, officials said.
They said the ED investigating team is following the procedure after a local court on Tuesday allowed the central agency to interrogate the senior Congress leader in this case.
Chidambaram’s wife Nalini and son Karti were seen arriving in Tihar Jail premises.
The Congress leader has spent about 55 days in Central Bureau of Investigation and judicial custody till now after he was arrested on August 21 in this case.
The ED has filed a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act to probe alleged irregularities in the grant of Foreign Investment Promotion Board approval to the INX Media group.
The court on Tuesday had also allowed the ED to arrest Chidambaram, if necessary.
