Former Union Minister P Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram on Monday appealed to the Supreme Court, seeking approval to travel abroad.
Karti's lawyer Kapil Sibal requested the apex court to allow Karti to travel to the United Kingdom between October 18 and November 13 for his daughter's admission process at the Cambridge University.
Karti, who is alleged to have done irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance for INX media, is banned from travelling outside India.
A lookout notice issued by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on July 18 prevents Karti from travelling abroad without the investigating agency's permission.
He had approached the top court earlier challenging the lookout notice.
The ongoing case pertains to allege that Karti illegally took service charges for getting the FIPB clearance to INX Media for receiving funds from abroad worth Rs 305 crore in 2007, when his father P. Chidambaram was the finance minister in Congress-led United Progressive Alliance's rule.
The apex court has adjourned the matter for further hearing till tomorrow.
