CBI Raids 9 Locations Linked to Chidambarams in New Case Involving Chinese Nationals
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is conducting raids at nine locations belonging to Congress leader Karti Chidambaram and his father, former Union minister P Chidambaram in connection with a fresh case of visas issued to Chinese nationals for illegal gratification.
According to sources, the probe agency is conducting raids in Odisha, Karnataka, Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai.
"The new case in which raids are being conducted is related to foreign remittance and companies and it was registered a few days back. The dealing took place in 2010-2014. During this period funds were received and sent abroad by or at the instruction of Chidambaram," said a source.
It has been alleged that senior Mr Chidambaram allegedly helped Chinese nationals get visas by flouting rules. A project was going on in Punjab for which Chidambaram helped them in getting visas.
The raids started at 8am and are continuing. The CBI is also recording the statements of the persons who are at the house of Mr Chidambaram.
Further details awaited.

people like them are not stupid and know very well if they are caught everything will come out hence they put them in swiss banks or in some other names to escape scrutiny and leave no trace for anyone to find out .Unless cbi/ed etc are more intelligent and device ways to prove they are guilty only then it will stand in court with proof otherwise it can take ages to prove with documentary evidence in court and these people are not stupid to leave things like that for cbi/ed to come and give them on a platter
