Former Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram and two companies have been named in a chargesheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the Aircel-Maxis case.

The two companies arraigned are Advantage Strategic Consulting Private Ltd. and Chess Management Services, the first was controlled by Mr. Karti while he was a promoter of the latter, the ED claimed.

Not only has Karti denied involvement on several occasions, but his father also took to Twitter to make a point. 'The complaint [chargesheet] filed by ED against Karti Chidambaram and others is seriously flawed', P Chidambaram tweeted.

According to news agencies, the point that ED has made against Chess Management is that the firm received ₹90 lakh from Maxis and its associate Malaysian companies. This payment was purportedly for software services which were designed for compliance with Indian laws and not of use to a Malaysian company. This forms a direct link between Karti-led company and Maxis.
