New Delhi, Oct 29 :
Former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran has been summoned by a special court hearing Aircel-Marxis deal, as part of the larger 2G spectrum allocation case, to appear before it March 2.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Court Judge O.P. Saini, after taking cognizance of the charges framed in the case, also summoned Maran’s brother Kalanithi, and Malaysian businessman T. Ananda Krishnan, among others, as co-accused in the case.
The agency has alleged that Dayanidhi Maran used his influence to help Krishnan to buy Aircel by coercing its owner Sivasankaran to part with his stake.
