Maran and Ananda Krishnan in trouble: SC admits Prashant Bhushan’s plea seeking arrest of accused in Aircel Maxis case
TT Correspondent | | 16 Dec 2011

In a major development the Supreme Court on Friday admitted the Prashant Bhushan’s bail plea seeking arrest of the accused in Aircel Maxis case. This could spell trouble for former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran and Malaysian business tycoon and head of Maxis Communications T Ananda Krishnan Ananada Krishna.

The CBI had investigated the matter related to corruption and misuse of official position by Mr Dyanidhi Maran when he was Telecom Minister. Over 4-5 months of investigations, the CBI found the involvement of seven persons/entities.

The CBI then filed an FIR on October 9, 2011 and searched the premises of the accused on October 10, 2011. Since then over two months have passed, the CBI is deliberately going slow in the case and has not made any arrests in the case.

Petitioners submit that this was the most clear-cut case of corruption and quid pro quo, and is being made weak by the CBI. Chargesheet should have been filed in this case several months back.”§ion=S174
