A team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials on Friday visited Tihar Jail in Delhi to interrogate former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram in connection with INX Media money laundering case.
A senior ED official said that a team has gone there to question Chidambaram and also to confront him with some documents.
The financial probe agency's action comes a day after a Special CBI Court allowed ED to interrogate Chidambaram for two days in connection with the money laundering case in INX Media deal.
Special CBI Judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar allowed the agency to confront Chidambaram on 22 and 23 November during office hours.
ED's legal team led by Standing Counsel Amit Mahajan and Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Naveen Kumar Matta had moved the court seeking permission to interrogate the former finance minister.
Chidambaram was arrested on 21 August by the CBI but was granted bail later.
The ED later arrested Chidambaram in the INX media money laundering case.
