CBI registers case against 4 Reliance Infocomm officials
New Delhi, Sept 11 (UNI) The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a case against four Reliance Infocomm officials for auto-routing international calls as local -- depriving the government of sizeable revenue, a spokesman said today.
The spokesman gave no other details.
A source said it was decided not to ''play it up.'' Some details came in a statement from Reliance Communications headed by Anil Ambani.
Distancing itself from the alleged scandal, the RC said, ''the reported criminal case registered by the CBI pertains to the alleged re-routing of international calls prior to the reorganisation of the Reliance group, at which point of time Reliance Infocomm was under the previous management.
''The officials accused by the CBI are from the Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) group, and have nothing to do with the Reliance ADA group.
''Mr Manoj Modi currently heads the retail business of RIL, and Mr Shankar Adwal looks after Government Relations for RIL in Delhi,'' the statement said.
The RC explained the statement was a response ''to media queries on reports of the CBI registering a case against four senior officials of Reliance Infocomm.'' It did not name the other two officials.
