Nearly three weeks after filing the first charge sheet in the 2G spectrum allocation scam, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is ready with the second charge sheet that is expected to centre around money trail in the multi-crore rupee scam.
The agency will file the charge sheet on Monday in the court of Special CBI judge O.P. Saini, sources in the CBI said. Names of top corporate honchos and some politicians were likely to figure in the list of accused persons, the sources indicated. The probe on the 2G spectrum scam is being monitored by the Supreme Court.
The charge sheet is also likely to shed light on the alleged transfer of money that found its way from DB Realty to Kalaignar TV in which Kanimozhi, Rajya Sabha MP and daughter of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK chief M. Karunanidhi, Dayaluammal, wife of Mr. Karunanidhi, and Sharad Kumar, Managing Director, hold shares. The CBI has already questioned them on the money trail and links with DB Realty.
The CBI had earlier told the court that Rs. 200 crore connected with the 2G spectrum scam had travelled from a partnership firm of Swan Telecom Promoter Shahid Usman Balwa to the Kalaignar TV Pvt. Ltd. The agency said the money travelled through a “circuitous route” through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd, a DB group company and Cineyug Films Pvt. Ltd.
“Investigations have also revealed that in furtherance of the conspiracy, Dynamix Realty, a partnership firm of DB Realty Ltd and other DB group companies, paid Rs. 200 crore to the Kalaignar TV Pvt. Ltd. during December 2008 to August 2009, following a circuitous route through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd and Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd [DB group holds 49 per cent equity in it],” the CBI said in the first charge sheet filed on April 2.
