Former media baron Peter Mukherjea in judicial custody till April 13



New Delhi, March 31: Peter Mukherjea, former media baron has been sent to judicial custody till April 13. He has been sent by a Delhi court in connection with the INX Media case.

According to CBI,"Peter Mukerjea didn't cooperate with the investigators. That's why CBI couldn't confront him with Karti or his CA. For the next dates, Peter will be produced through video conferencing from Mumbai Jail. He will be taken to Mumbai today."

Earlier this week, the court sent Peter to CBI custody till March 31.

INX Media Ltd, which was owned by Mukerjea, had allegedly paid bribes to get a Foreign Investment Promotion Board approval which was facilitated by 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 Mumbai Jail. He will be taken to Mumbai today.

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