The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday ordered Karti Chidambaram to appear before the CBI in a corruption case, thus staying a Madras high court order that allowed him to travel overseas.

Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, sought an urgent hearing of the plea against the Congress party leader's son.

A bench comprising Chief Justice JS Khehar and DY Chandrachud has also stayed Madras High Court's order allowing Karti to travel overseas.

Mehta told the court the order staying the lookout notice was received by the CBI on Friday and since the next two days were Saturday and Sunday they were moving the court on Monday for an early hearing.

The bench, meanwhile, asked the High Court to decide the petition seeking quashing of the FIR lodged by the CBI.

The court had given an interim stay to Karti Chidambaram in the case and posted the matter for hearing on September 4, 2017.

Claiming that the CBI issued the summons when he was overseas, Karti told the court that his counsel duly informed about my stay overseas to the CBI through a letter dated June 20. Others who got the interim relief are Karti's associates C B N Reddy, Ravi Viswanathan, Mohanan Rajesh and S Baskar Raman.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has moved the Supreme Court against the stay issued on the look out circular against Karti Chidambaram, son of former union minister, P Chidambaram.

The CBI had summoned Karti between June 27-29, but Karti, through his lawyers, informed the investigating team that he needed more time, before he could appear for questioning. While the CBI had claimed that the FDI proposal of the media house was "fallacious", Chidambaram had given his nod. It was followed by searches at the residences and offices of Karti and his associates on 16 May.
