A senior from CBI has confirmed that “If required, the agency may also do a lie-detector test on the former minister after taking permission from the competent court”.

Indrani who is the INX’s former director has been the approver and mentioned in her statement that she and her spouse Peter Mukerjea had met the Chidambaram at his office in New Delhi’s North block then she said, “Peter had started the conversation with P Chidambaram referring to the application of INX Media for bringing in FDI and handed a copy of the application to the former finance minister”. To confirming this CBI will be taking Chidambaram to Byculla jail.
