Court raps CBI, ED for delay in winding up 2G spectrum case

Supreme Court orders CBI ED to complete 2G scam probe in six months

"The country can not be kept in the dark", the Supreme Court said on Monday while directing the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate to complete investigation into all 2G Spectrum scam cases, including the Aircel-Maxis deal case, in six months.

The top court said it is "very unfortunate" that investigation in the 2G cases has not been completed yet and "people of this country can not be kept in dark in a serious and sensitive case like this".

"The issue is serious for this country". However, the investigation in many cases related to 2G scam has not been completed.

"Why is there so much delay in completing the investigation in the 2G spectrum and ancilliary cases". The court also dismissed a case filed by the Enforcement Directorate related to the 2G scam.

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. The country can't be kept in darkness like this. "This case is becoming like "touch me not", the bench said.

The court said it was open for the central government to change the SPP to represent the CBI and the ED after the trial gets over. The investigators are also examining allegations that former finance minister P. Chidambaramignored Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) regulations by clearing the foreign investment proposal in 2006 to a Mauritius company to acquire 73.99% equity in M/s Aircel Ltd, a telecom service provider.

Presently, the CBI and ED are probing the only Aircel-Maxis case arising out of the 2G spectrum scam allocation.

After hearing the case for close to seven years, a Special CBI Court, on December 21, 2017, acquitted DMK leaders A Raja, Kanimozhi and 15 other accused in the case.
