Complete probe in 2G, Aircel-Maxis cases in 6 months: Apex court

Complete probe in 2G, Aircel-Maxis cases in 6 months: Apex court”

The Supreme Court has ordered Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate to wrap up the 2G spectrum allocation scam case by completing the investigation within six months.

The investigation has been going on for a long time and people can not be kept in the dark in a sensitive matter such as this, the bench of Justices Arun Misra and Naveen Sinha noted.

The judges added: "We direct the competent investigating agencies to complete the investigation within six months in all the cases and aspects concerned with 2G spectrum case".

It was earlier reported that the ED and the CBI had said that alleged irregularities in the grant of clearance in the case are still alive and they are further probing the linkages to establish payoffs. "No stone should be left unturned".

The top court called it "shocking" that despite its monitoring, the probe in the 2G spectrum scam case was still not over. The country can't be kept in darkness like this.

The bench asked the Centre to file a report on the status of investigation into the 2G and other related cases in two weeks. "This case is becoming like "touch me not", the bench said. The direction of the Supreme Court has come after Tushar Mehta appointed as the special public prosecutor in all 2G scam related cases.

The court said it was open for the central government to change the special public prosecutor to represent the CBI and ED after the trial got over. He is accused of giving Foreign investment Promotion Board (FIPB) green light in Aircel-Maxis case.

In December 2017, a special court had acquitted all the accused in the scam, giving a major relief to former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi who were jailed on charges of taking kickbacks to issue the telecom spectrum and licences in 2008 at throwaway prices.
