UPA chairman Sonia Gandhi coterie member and ex Finance Minister P Chidambaram, his son Karti and senior government officials have been finally charge sheeted by the CBI  in the INX Media corruption case .

Opposing Mr Chidambaram’s request for bail, the CBI told the supreme court that the 74-year-old Congress leader poses a flight risk and could also influence a witness. The charge sheet was filed before a special court, the agency said.

“The witness has given a statement that he is being influenced. We don’t wish to disclose his identity and his name has been given submitted to the CBI court in a sealed cover,” Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the CBI, said.

Mehta told the court that charges in the case against Chidambaram include forgery.P Chidambaram, who served twice as finance minister and also as a home minister in the previous Congress-led governments, was arrested in a dramatic late-night swoop on August 21 by officers from the CBI.

After being questioned at the agency’s headquarters for 14 days, he was transferred to the capital’s Tihar jail under judicial custody on September 5.On Wednesday, he was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate which is investigating a separate money laundering case and was moved to agency’s custody yesterday out of Tihar.
