CBI court allows 2G accused to travel abroad

A special court has allowed Unitech Limited Managing Director Sanjay Chandra, an accused in the 2G spectrum allocation case, to travel abroad for business purposes even as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) opposed his plea.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini asked his office to return Chandra’s passport to facilitate his travel, directing the accused to surrender his passport to the court within 48 hours of his arrival to India. The order was passed by the court on Wednesday.

Chandra had sought permission of the court to travel to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and Austria from Thursday to January 26, his lawyer Tarannum Cheema told Deccan Herald.

The CBI, however, strongly objected to Chandra’s plea, contending that his application was not supported by “proper documentation” and he was filing such applications “quite frequently”.
