Special CBI Court discharges Maran Brothers in Rs. 700 Crore Aircel-Maxis deal Case

February,2,2017:

Maran Brothers

The Accused Maran Brothers had allegedly made Rs, 700 Crore in the deal.

On Thursday, Special Court dropped all the charges against the Former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi Maran and others in Aircel-Maxis deal cases lodged by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED).

O.P Saini,Special Judge discharged Maran, his brother Kalanithi Maran, Kalanithi’s wife Kavery Kalanithi, South Asia FM Ltd (SAFL) Managing Director K. Shanmugam and the two companies SAFL and the Sun Direct TV Pvt Ltd (SDTPL) in the two different cases.

The Special Court was hearing two different matters related to the Aircel-Maxis deal lodged by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED).

CBI had alleged that Dayanidhi Maran, as Minister in UPA-I government, had used his influence to help the Malaysian businessman T.A. Ananda Krishnan buy Aircel by coercing its owner Mr. Sivasankaran to part with his stake. All the accused had denied the allegations made against them.

Special Court had on September 24, 2016, issued open warrants of the arrest against Krishnan and Marshall on  CBI’s plea stating that the summons issued to them could not be served.

The Court had also ordered that trial against Maran brothers and two accused companies be segregated from that of those based in Malaysia, Krishnan, Marshall, and two firms, Astro All Asia Network PLC and Maxis Communication Berhad, stating that their appearance may take a long time which may lead to a delay in proceedings.
