Her statement had become a turn-around point in the case.

Karti Chidambaram, however, has denied the allegations and said that he has only met her once.

Chidambaram, who is the prime accused in the case will be in judicial custody in Tihar jail till September 19.

The case pertains to cases registered by the CBI and the ED pertaining to alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board clearance given to INX Media to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when Chidambaram was the Union Finance Minister.
