2G: Tina Ambani reaches court to depose as prosecution witness

2G: Tina Ambani reaches court to depose as prosecution witness

New Delhi: Tina Ambani, wife of Reliance ADAG chairman Anil Ambani, on Friday reached Delhi court to depose as a prosecution witness in 2G case.

Tina Ambani, who was summoned for today to record her statement, had moved a plea seeking exemption from personal appearance. However, after concluding his deposition Thursday, Anil Ambani told the court that she would be appearing before it on Friday as scheduled.

The court had on July 19 allowed CBI’s plea to make Anil and Tina Ambani as prosecution witnesses after the agency had said their testimonies may throw light on alleged investment of over Rs 990 crore by his group companies in Swan Telecom facing trial in the case along with its promoters Shahid Usman Balwa and Vinod Goenka.

It had said CBI’s move to summon Ambani, his wife and 11 others as prosecution witnesses was essential for arriving at a just decision in the case.

The trial in the 2G case involves 17 accused, including three companies — Reliance Telecom Ltd, Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd and Unitech (Wireless) Tamil Nadu Ltd.

Besides them, Former Telecom Minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi, former Telecom Secretary Siddharth Behura, Raja’s erstwhile private secretary R K Chandolia, Swan Telecom promoters Shahid Usman Balwa and Vinod Goenka, Unitech Ltd MD Sanjay Chandra, three top executives of Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair are facing trial in the case.

Directors of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal, Kalaignar TV Director Sharad Kumar and Bollywood producer Karim Morani are also accused in the case.
