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

The case will be heard next on 2 April

"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.

A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra slammed the agencies for not completing their probe in all 2G cases, saying "you can't keep the people of the country in the dark". However, the investigation in many cases related to 2G scam has not been completed. "We are anxious about this case, we are very unhappy", the bench said. We are unhappy the way things are going on as the investigation has not seen light of the day. Both the investigative agencies have been criticised by the apex court after they failed completely the 2G investigation within 6 months and submit a report.

The court noted that the case has come before this Bench after a gap of four years.

Presently, the CBI and ED are probing the only Aircel-Maxis case arising out of the 2G spectrum scam allocation. The court dismissed the Centre for Public Interest Litigation's plea challenging the government's decision to appoint Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta in Grover's place.

The court also discharged senior advocate Anand Grover, who was appointed the Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) by the apex court in the 2G case.

The court had also dropped charges against former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran and others accused in the Aircel-Maxis case.

The case goes back to 2006, when Foreign Investment Promotion Board's approval was granted to Aircel Maxis, during the tenure of the then finance minister P Chidambaram.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Dec 21, 2017, declared no evidence to prosecute the accused and acquitted all accused personnel's.
