2G case: Court reserves order on CBI’s plea to summon Anil Ambani as witness
New Delhi: A Delhi court today reserved for July 19 its order on CBI’s plea seeking to summon Reliance ADA Group Chairman Anil Ambani, his wife Tina Ambani and others as prosecution witnesses in the 2G spectrum case.
“Arguments heard. Put up for order on July 19,” Special CBI Judge O.P. Saini said after hearing arguments from CBI as well as the defence counsel on the plea. During the hearing today, special public prosecutor UU Lalit said that Anil Ambani would be the person who would be able to “throw light” on the matter relating to alleged investment of over Rs 990 crore in Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd, facing trial in the case, by Reliance ADA Group companies and other issues.
“Perhaps he (Anil Ambani) was not part of the decision making meeting but he was aware and according to me this is sufficient. Rs 992 crore was invested. He (Anil Ambani) was aware of the development. He would be the person who would be able to throw light on the matter,” Lalit alleged.
He also told the court that as far as the meetings are concerned, Tina Ambani had presided over the relevant meetings.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
