The Supreme Court today allowed former finance minister's son Karti Chidambaram to travel abroad but has warned him that the court will be "forced to take steps" if he does not cooperate with the probe agencies, investigating the Aircel-Maxis case.

The apex court asked Karti to appear before the Enforcement Directorate on March 5, 6, 7 and 12 for questioning in connection with the INX Media and Aircel Maxis cases, saying “don’t play around with the law”, if you play around with the law, only God can help you. We will come down heavily on you.

“You go wherever you want to go, between February 10 to 26 but you must cooperate with the investigation,” a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said. “Please tell your clients that he will have to cooperate. You have not cooperated. We wanted to say a lot of things. We are not saying them right now,” the bench said.

Karti has also been directed to file an undertaking that he will return and cooperate with the investigation.

The bench was hearing Karti's plea seeking permission to travel to France, Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom for the next few months for international tennis tournaments organized by a company called 'Totus Tennis Ltd' having its registered office in the UK.

On January 16, the Supreme Court refused to give an urgent hearing to Karti Chidambaram who was seeking permission to travel abroad.

“We are not interested. We have better things to do,” Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said during the hearing. “We will see what can be done,” he added.

Karti had asked for an urgent hearing for permission to travel abroad in November 2018 too. “Don’t go... Stay back in India,” Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had said then.
