Emmett Howard | 13 March, 2018, 03:32

The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to wrap up all 2G-related probes, including the Aircel-Maxis scam, within six months.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Navin Sinha, who were annoyed by the delay in completion of probe in the 2G spectrum cases, which started in 2010, said it will "haul every officer involved the case if investigation is not completed within next six months".

ED also found that a company promoted by Chidambaram's son Karti and nephew A Palaniappan allegedly received $2 lakh from the Maxis Group in the guise of software consultancy.

A bench of Justices Arun Misra and Naveen Sinha observed that the investigation had been going on for very long and said people of this country can not be kept in dark in the sensitive matter like this.

"This is a very important case and the country must know the results, whatever may be the decision".

"Issue is serious for this country".

The court said, "This case has significance for the people as the 2G scam has attracted the attention of this court and citizenry since long".

Grover had filed an application seeking the permission of the apex court to discharge him from his duties after the trial in 2G spectrum cases concluded at Patiala House.

The Aircel-Maxis case refers to a Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval in 2006 by the then Union finance minister P Chidambaram.

The two agencies have been investigating Aircel/Maxis telecom owner and Malaysian accused T. Ananda Krishnan and Ralph Marshall.

Earlier the Supreme Court had appointed Senior Advocate Anand Grover as Special Public Prosecutor to appear before the Special Court of PMLA (and higher Courts) in the proceedings related to 2G Spectrum cases. The agency had found that the approval given in the Aircel-Maxis deal was given by Chidambaram beyond his mandate.

However, the CBI and ED cases in the Aircel-Maxis deal could not withhold judicial scrutiny as the special 2G court had in February past year discharged Dayanidhi Maran, his industrialist brother Kalanithi Maran and others saying the alleged charges were based on "misreading of official files", speculation and surmises of the complainant.
