The Enforcement Director on Friday questioned former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in Aircel-Maxis money laundering case.

On Tuesday, P Chidambaram had accused the CBI of leaking parts of the charge sheet in the Aircel-Maxis case to the media "to sensationalize" the issue and "make mockery of judicial process".

In his application, the Congress leader alleged that the CBI was not interested in a fair trial in the court of law and only wanted trial by the media.

The CBI is probing how Chidambaram, who was the Union finance minister in 2006, granted a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval to a foreign firm, when only the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) was empowered to do it.

The senior Congress leader's role has come under the scanner of investigating agencies in the Rs 3,500-crore Aircel-Maxis deal and the INX Media case involving Rs 305 crore.
