2G case: Anil Ambani deposes as CBI witness in court

2G case: Anil Ambani deposes as CBI witness in court

New Delhi: Reliance ADAG Chairman Anil Ambani on Thursday deposed as a CBI witness in the 2G case before a Delhi court after it dismissed Reliance Telecom Ltd’s (RTL) plea for postponement of his testimony.

Ambani reached the court premises early this morning and deposed before Special CBI Judge O P Saini.

The court had yesterday dismissed RTL’s plea for postponement of examination of additional witnesses– Anil Ambani and his wife Tina — in the 2G case, saying no prejudice would be caused to any accused by their deposition.

RTL had not got any relief from the Supreme Court either, which had declined to pass any order on its plea for stay of trial court’s direction summoning Anil Ambani and other witnesses in the 2G case.

On August 17, RTL had approached the special CBI court with the plea that it should “await” outcome of the Supreme Court proceedings on their petition challenging summoning of additional witnesses in the case, before examining Anil and Tina Ambani.

The trial court, in its July 19 order, had said CBI’s plea to summon Anil, Tina and 11 others as prosecution witnesses was essential for arriving at a just decision in the case.

The court had summoned Anil for August 22 to record his statement in the case. Tina has been summoned on August 23 to depose as a witness.

RTL, along with others, including former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi, is facing trial in the 2G case.
