The cable network was laid when Mr. Maran was the Telecom Minister from 2004 to 2007

In the wake of reports that a fibre cable network has been laid from the residence of Dayanidhi Maran to Sun TV office in Chennai, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa said she would get the matter “thoroughly examined” and take necessary action.

“I came to know from media reports that optic fibre cables have been laid in an unauthorised manner from the house of Dayanidhi Maran to Sun TV office in Chennai. Today I am busy with the Planning Commission meeting. As soon as I return to Chennai, I will get this matter thoroughly examined and take necessary action,” the AIADMK chief said.

The report said the cable network was laid when Mr. Maran was the Telecom Minister from 2004 to 2007.

Under CBI scanner

Meanwhile, the CBI told the Supreme Court that it is now probing Mr. Maran’s involvement in the 2G spectrum scam. The investigative agency told the court that Mr. Maran forced the promoter of a Chennai-based telecom company to sell his firm to a Malaysian firm in 2006.

The CBI assured the court of completing its probe into the money trail in the spectrum scam by August 31 and that its investigation into all irregularities in spectrum allocation during 2001-08 would be completed within 3 months.
