Reliance ADA Group chairman Anil Ambani's failure to conclusively recall details about his group companies and their financial transactions prompted the Delhi court, trying the 2G spectrum allocation case, to advice him to remember something.
"Sahab aap kuch zyada bhool rahe hai. Kuch to yaad karne ki koshish kijiye (sir, you are forgetting a lot. Try to recall something)," Special CBI Judge O P Saini told Ambani who was deposing as a prosecution witness in the case.
Asked a question by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) related to alleged associate company of Reliance ADAG, 54-year-old Ambani said he was unable to recall if it was a part of his group company.
To this, the court advised him that such answers can also go against him.
"You must be knowing the name of promoter of the companies. This is just an advice for you. It can go against you also that you even don't know the names of your companies. So be careful," the court said when Ambani told him that there was a large number of firms in his group and he does not recall.
During his deposition, when Ambani told the court that he was not able to recall most of the answers, the judge told him that he was "under obligation to tell the truth to the court" and he was turning "hostile".
"Gawah to hostile hai kuch nahi keh raha (witness is hostile, he is not saying anything)," the court remarked.
