Chennai, July 23: The Madras High Court on Monday set aside the Look Out Circulars issued against Karti Chidambaram by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in June last year in connection with the INX media case.
The court also said that the order would not affect any proceedings initiated against him in the case under the registered first investigation report (FIR).
Earlier in the day, following Karti’s plea seeking permission to travel abroad, the Supreme Court allowed him to visit USA, France and UK from July 23 to 31 for business purposes.
Karti and his father P Chidambaram under the scanner of investigating agencies, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to INX Media.
In February, Karti was arrested for his alleged involvement in the matter. However, the Delhi High Court granted him a bail in March.
