Thirteen months after it began probing alleged irregularities in the allocation of 2G spectrum, the CBI today questioned former telecom minister A Raja for the first time. The questioning at the CBI headquarters lasted almost nine hours. Raja turned up at the CBI headquarters shortly after 10 am following summons under Section 160 CrPC.He was "questioned in relation to the case registered into the allocation of unified access service licences," CBI DIG and spokesperson Binita Thakur told reporters.Sources said Raja was asked questions relating to advancement of dates for spectrum allocation, alleged funding in some telecom companies by his relatives, his tapped conversations with corporate lobbyist Niira Radia and his own investments.Raja, the sources said, was also confronted with documents recovered during searches at the office of the Department of Telecom (DoT). "We also cross-questioned him on facts given to us by Niira Radia," a source said.Radia was questioned by the CBI on Tuesday at her house. "His brother also came (to the CBI office) but Raja was questioned alone for some time," a source said.Officials said he would be called again for questioning.
