New Delhi, Feb 16 (ANI): Anil Ambani, chairman of the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG), met Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials here on Wednesday o clarify the ongoing issues, relating to telecom matters for the years 2001 to 2010.

Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, however, issued a statement saying that he visited the CBI as part of his weekly visit to Delhi.

"Neither Reliance Telecom, nor RCOM, nor any Reliance ADA Group individual, company or affiliate held even a SINGLE share in Swan Telecom Ltd., at the time of grant of the 2G license to them in January 2008, or at any time thereafter. Neither Reliance Telecom, nor RCOM, nor any Reliance ADA Group individual, company or affiliate has obtained any monetary gain or other benefit, directly or indirectly, from the grant of 2G license to Swan Telecom in January 2008," the statement said."Neither Reliance Telecom, nor RCOM, nor any Reliance ADA Group individual, company or affiliate is a beneficiary of, or has any connection with, any of the 13 licenses issued, or spectrum granted, to old and new 2G operators in January 2008. Contrary to reporting in a section of the media, the enquiries by CBI and other authorities are by no means specific to RCOM, and instead, have already reportedly covered more than 50 people from across a large number of telecom operators," it added.

Reliance Communications, the flagship company of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, had earlier on Sunday denied its involvement in the 2G scam.

Earlier, it was reported that DB Realty Managing Director Shahid Balwa has admitted that Reliance Communications had invested in his firm and helped him to start business to apply for 2G spectrum licences.

Shahid is now under Central Bureau of Investigation custody for his alleged involvement in the multi-crore 2G spectrum scam.

Earlier on Tuesday, the CBI questioned Unitech MD Sanjay Chandra in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

The investigating agency also questioned the top officials of telecom companies that got 2G licenses.

The CBI has also quizzed the officials of Tata Realty, Loop and Unitech in the case.

The CBI on Monday extended the custody of former Telecom Minister A Raja for three more days and Shahid Balwa for four more days. (ANI)
