Getting no relief from the Supreme Court to avoid appearing as a CBI witness, Ambani took the witness stand for the first time and said he does not recall about each and every meeting of AAA Consultancy Services (P) Ltd when Special Public Prosecutor U U Lalit showed him the minutes of meetings the firm held in 2005-06.

"I attend a large number of meetings and I do not recall. I am going by the records only," he told Special CBI Judge O P Saini.
