New Delhi: In more trouble for former Finance Minister and Congress leader P. Chidambaram, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned him for questioning in an aviation scam case dating back to the UPA regime, authorities said on Monday.

A senior ED official told IANS: "We have summoned Chidambaram on August 23 for questioning in the aviation scam."

The Congress leader, who is being probed in the Aircel Maxis deal and INX Media case, has been summoned on charges of money laundering.
