Maran was told by the CBI when he was grilled for three days in connection with the illegal telephone exchange scam that he would need to submit the documents.
Maran had told the CBI that he would submit those documents by Friday, but failed to do so. The CBI will wait another day more and if he fails to submit the documents by Monday, he will be summoned for questioning once again.
Maran assured to submit documents:
The CBI which found Maran to be evasive during the questioning had asked him to submit certain documents relating to the case. Maran had said that he has enough documentation to prove that he is innocent. The CBI said that they would need to see those documents which he is speaking about.
Maran prior to leaving the CBI office last week had sought a weeks time to submit the documents. He also said that he would do so by Friday last, the CBI official informed. However he has failed to turn up as of now with the documents and we will give him time till Monday failing which we will summon him for questioning, the officer further informed.
Maran was evasive:
The CBI found during the three day questioning that Maran was evasive with his answers. He repeatedly said that he had done no wrong in instructing the BSNL to put up high speed lines which benefited Sun TV. He also said that he had got one line which was regular and had not used his official position as Telecom Minister.
The CBI however during the questioning of others had found that Maran had infact misused his position to have these lines set up. The CBI however was unable to arrest Maran as he has an anticipatory bail order in his favour granted by the Madras High Court.
The CBI will now approach the Madras High Court to seek cancellation of the anticipatory bail plea. The CBI officer however did not indicate that Maran may be arrested, but added that they would wait until Monday.
