Special Judge Sunil Rana allowed the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) plea seeking production warrant against Indrani, who is jailed in Mumbai in connection with the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora.

The court directed the concerned authorities to present Indrani before it on 9 September.

Public Prosecutor Nitesh Rana told the court that the agency wants to quiz Indrani in the money laundering case.

On 19 May, the ED lodged a complaint against Karti alleging that he had received Rs 3.5 crore from INX Media, now 9X Media, for helping it in the clearance of a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) proposal when his father was the Union finance minister.

The FIPB clearance was given to the Mumbai-based INX Media when it was run by Peter and Indrani Mukerjea, both accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.

The complaint had not mentioned the name of former finance minister Chidambaram, though it stated that he cleared the FIPB approval for Rs 4.62 crore Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the FIPB meeting on 18 May, 2007, when he was holding the finance portfolio in the previous United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

The accused have denied all the charges against them.
