Aircel-Maxis case: Court to pass order on charge on Feb 2
A special court on Tuesday said it will pronounce on February 2 its order on framing of charges against former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi Maran and others in the Aircel-Maxis deal cases lodged by CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Special Judge O P Saini, who was scheduled to pass the order on Tuesday on framing of charges as well as on bail applications of the Maran brothers and other accused persons, deferred it to the next date, saying the order was not ready.
All the accused have denied the allegations against them made by the investigating agencies and have moved bail pleas.
During arguments on framing of charges, Special Public Prosecutor Anand Grover had claimed that Dayanidhi had "pressurised" Chennai-based telecom promoter C Sivasankaran to sell his stakes in Aircel and two subsidiary firms to Malaysian firm Maxis Group in 2006.
