Mumbai: DB Realty, which is embroiled in the 2G spectrum probe, on Monday said its director Sundaram Rajagopal has stepped down, making him the fourth board member to quit since February.

Shares of the realty firm, which has taken a beating in recent weeks, today plunged over eight per cent to 89.15 in late afternoon trade on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

Rajagopal’s resignation was effective from 21 March, the firm said in a regulatory filing.

Rajagopal becomes the fourth executive to leave DB Realty amid the ongoing investigation against the company related to the 2G spectrum scam.
