2G Scam: Chidambaram gets clean chit from CBI

New Delhi, Sept 29: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday, Sept 29 gave clean chit to Home Minister P Chidambaram in connection to 2G scam.

The investigating agency, which is probing into the irregularites of 2G allocation, said that then Finance Minister and now Home Minister, P Chidambaram, advocated for the auction of spectrum instead of first-come-first-served policy adopted by jailed former Telecom Minister A Raja.

Furthermore, the CBI told apex court that it will investigate further to find out real beneficiaries in 2G scam. Along with Chidambaram the CBI also gave clean chit to Videocon Industries-owned Datacom and informed court that Swan and Unitech, Datacom had been fulfilled the eligibility criteria for 2G license.

There may be some relief for the Tata group as the CBI told court that Tata Teleservices was not favoured by Raja.

CBI also said that Tata Group was a loser in spectrum allocation because of Raja's conspiracy with other co-accused in 2G scam and there was an erroneous allegations that Tata group donated land to DMK family in order to bag spectrum. CBI also added that the NGO connected to jailed DMK leader Kanimozhi is to be probed.
