The Indian Express

The Madras High Court on Tuesday ordered the Income Tax department to provide three family members of former Union minister P Chidambaram and a firm with copies of the sanction order for initiation of prosecution against them under the black money act by June 14. Passing interim orders on petitions filed by Chidambaram's wife Nalini, son Karti and daughter-in-law Srinidhi, besides the firm, the first bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice P T Asha also directed the I-T department to furnish copies of the prosecution complaints lodged in a court here to them. It then posted the matter to June 19. The petitioners, including the Chess Global Advisory, a company linked to Karti, have challenged the complaints filed by the I-T department on May 11 in a special court for economic offences, accusing them of not disclosing their foreign assets.
