Plea for making Anil Ambani and Dayalu Ammal as accused in 2G

The application filed by a Delhi based journalist M Furquan alleged CBI was choosing the persons selectively for chargesheeting in the scam.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini, who is hearing the 2G case, posted the matter for hearing on May 24 when he will hear an application filed by a Ghaziabad-based scrap dealer Dharmender Panday seeking further probe into the role of Tata chief Ratan Tata and corporate lobbyist Niira Radia in the scam.

In the application, the journalist submitted "Anil Dhirubhai Ambani is not made an accused in the case and this shows a serious omission on the part of CBI. By letting off main accused, CBI has committed a serious miscarriage of justice."

He further said in his application that ADAG Group Managing Director Gautam Doshi, senior Vice Presidents of Reliance Telecom company Surrendra Pipara and Hari Nair, who are currently lodged in Tihar jail for their alleged role in the scam, are ordinary employees in company and the offences which have been committed involves thousands of crores of rupees.

"Such offence cannot be committed by them without actual knowledge and consent of the chairman Anil Ambani," the application said.

While seeking to make Dayalu Ammal as an accused, he said when DMK MP and Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi, who is holding 20 percent of shares in Kalaignar TV, is made an accused in 2G scam, then why "60 percent stake-holder and director Dayalu Ammal is left out".

"This is another instance of selecting of accused by CBI. The reasons stated by CBI for not making Dayalu Ammal as an accused is that she knows only Tamil and no other language," the application said.

"CBI is apparently taking a defence stand in the case of Dayalu Ammal for reasons best known to them. There is culpable delay in further investigation and leaving out Anil Ambani and Dayalu Ammal from the array of accused is suspicious and can be only on account of extraneous and political influence and calls for interference from this court," he said.
