He arrived at the ED’s headquarter annexe office shortly before 11 am. He was summoned after he was first questioned on June 5 by the agency.
The investigating officer of the case is expected to record Chidambaram’s statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). It is understood that the agency wants to put across a fresh set of questions to him regarding the deal and decisions taken by him. The agency had recorded his statement for six hours on various aspects last time.
Chidambaram, also a former home minister, earlier had approached the court of Special Judge O P Saini seeking relief from arrest by the ED in the case. The court then directed the ED not to take any coercive action or arrest him till July 10 in connection with the case.
