Peter Mukerjea, former head of INX Media has been sent to judicial custody by a Delhi court till April 13. Earlier this week, the court had granted CBI custody of Mukerjea till March 31.

INX Media Ltd, which was once owned by Mukerjea, had allegedly paid bribes to get a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval allegedly-facilitated by the former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s son, Karti Chidambaram.

CBI also stated that Peter Mukerjea didn’t cooperate with the investigators and so they couldn’t confront him with Karti or his CA. For the next dates, Peter will be produced through video conferencing from the Mumbai jail where he will be shifted today.

However, on March 23, the Delhi High Court had granted bail to Karti in connection with the case, on a surety of Rs 10 lakh.
