A Delhi court on Tuesday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file a status report on a complaint against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran for allegedly diluting the terms of reference in the allocation of 2G spectrum.
The court asked the agency to file its report after the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of the Delhi government said the matter was already being investigated by the CBI.
The matter pertains to a complaint filed by RTI activist Vivek Garg accusing the Prime Minister and Maran of "unlawfully changing and diluting" the original Terms of References (ToRs) for vacation and reallocation of spectrum leading to the 2G scam.
"The status report has not been filed for the past three months. Let Superintendent of Police, CBI, Anti-Corruption Branch, file status report on or before January 7, 2013 failing which let him appear in person on January 7," Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal said.
The court passed the order after the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) submitted that it had sought status report from the CBI, which is already in the know of the matter but is yet to receive it.
