A team of Enforcement Directorate officials on Wednesday arrested former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media money laundering case after questioning him in Tihar Jail.
A team of ED officials reached the Tihar Jail on Wednesday morning to question the Congress leader in the case, officials said.
They said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigating team followed the procedure after a local court on Tuesday allowed the central agency to interrogate the senior Congress leader in this case.
Chidambaram's wife Nalini and son Karti were also seen in Tihar Jail premises.
The Congress leader has spent about 55 days in CBI and judicial custody till now after he was arrested on August 21 in this case.
The ED has filed a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to probe alleged irregularities in the grant of FIPB approval to the INX Media group.
The court on Tuesday had also allowed the ED to arrest Chidambaram, if necessary.
