A Delhi court on Monday extended former Minister P. Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram's interim protection from arrest till March 8 in the Aircel-Maxis deal case.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are probing how Karti Chidambaram got clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) for the Aircel-Maxis deal in 2006 when his father was the Union Finance Minister.

The ED on October 25, 2018 filed a chargesheet naming Chidambaram and a few others. The CBI had on July 19, 2018 filed another chargesheet against 18 persons in the case.
