The CBI today produced Karti Chidambaram before a Delhi court and sought 14-day custody to interrogate him in connection with INX Media case.

Karti, son of former union minister P Chidambaram, was produced before Special Judge Sunil Rana. The court had on Wednesday sent him to one-day custody.

Karti's mother Nalini Chidambaram, who is also a senior advocate, was seen sitting with him in the court. 

Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi is leading the team of advocates for Karti.

The CBI had yesterday sought 15 days custody of Karti for his interrogation but the duty magistrate had remanded him to one-day police custody.

Karti was arrested yesterday at Chennai Airport on his return from the United Kingdom in connection with the FIR lodged on May 15 last year alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when his father P Chidambaram was the union finance minister.
