Help Spectrum scam: CBI may file FIR against Dayanidhi Maran
Advertisement
#1
NEW DELHI: The CBI is likely to register an FIR against Dayanidhi Maran, who held the telecom portfolio between 2004 and 2007, sources familiar with the investigation said.

"Our investigations into the PE have been completed. We should be able to register a regular case against the Marans early next month," sources told ET.

The probe against Maran is focused on his treatment of applications for additional frequency spectrum by Aircel, a company owned by entrepreneur C Sivasankaran.

Maran is alleged to have sat on the applications, but once Aircel's ownership changed, the clearances allegedly speeded. The CBI is also investigating if there was any nexus between this episode and a subsequent investment in a DTH arm of Sun TV, owned by Dayanidhi's brother Kalanidhi, by Malaysia's Maxis, the new owner of Aircel.

Both Dayanidhi and Kalanidhi Maran have strenuously denied any wrong-doing.

The sources also said they had little evidence of wrong-doing against Arun Shourie, another former telecom minister. The role of the late Pramod Mahajan, who also held the telecom portfolio, is also being probed. This may not amount to much as Mahajan is no more.
