2G scam: CBI closes probe against former telecom minister Arum Shourie-Report
TT Correspondent |  |  17 Jul 2012

The CBI has said that it has not found any criminality during the implementation of telecom policy during the former telecom minister Arum Shourie’s tenure saying that it will not register any fresh case in 2G spectrum allocation case, PTI reports.

 

The agency said that it has closed its larger preliminary enquiry (PE) into the irregularities in implementation of the telecom policy between 2001 and 2007.

 

The CBI had registered two FIRs, one against former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran in connection with the Aircel-Maxis deal and the another against Pramod Mahajan’s tenure as telecom minister. The agency is believed to have written to the department of telecommunication (DoT) about them.

 

CBI sources told PTI that the first-come, first-served policy adopted during Shourie's tenure was to promote telecom services in less lucrative areas where telecom operators were reluctant to go.
