2G case: court allowed Swan co-promoter to sign resolution

Special CBI Judge O P Saini allowed Goenka's plea after the probe agency did not raise any objection on his plea.

Vijay Aggarwal, counsel for Goenka, had said his client is also a director of real estate firm Siddhivinayak Realties Pvt Ltd and he be allowed to appoint an additional director as he is currently lodged in Tihar Jail in connection with the case.

"Kindly permit Goenka to sign the board resolution of the company to appoint an additional director so that the work of company will not suffer due to his unavailability," Aggarwal had said.

Goenka, arrested on April 20, is in judicial custody along with 13 other accused including former Telecom Minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and Swan Telecom co-promoter Shahid Usman Balwa.

In the first chargesheet, CBI had named Goenka as one of the accused in the spectrum allocation scam.

Goenka, along with three top officials of Reliance ADAG -- Group President Surendra Pipara, Senior Vice President Hari Nair and Group MD Gautam Doshi-- are accused of conspiring with Raja and DoT officials to cause a loss of Rs 30,000 crore to the state by manipulating the first-come-first-serve (FCFS) policy.
