The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday directed former Union minister P Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram to vacate his home in Delhi’s Jor Bagh, which was earlier seized in the INX Media corruption case.
The eviction notice was served on Wednesday evening following an earlier order of the Adjudicating Authority, PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act), by which the attachment of the property was confirmed.

The attachment was later confirmed by the authority on March 29, following which the directions were given, the notice said.
The case involving Rs 305 crore relates to Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval granted in 2007 for receipt of funds by INX Media.
