2G scam | CBI grills Unitech MD

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) questioned on Tuesday the managing director of Unitech Ltd Sanjay Chandra over a telecom corruption scandal, Binita Thakur, a spokeswoman for the CBI said.

Chandra’s firm, the Indian partner of Norway’s Telenor is one of the two firms accused of being favoured by former telecom minister A Raja when mobile phone licences were being issued in 2008.

Meanwhile Chandra said he was at the federal police office to “clarify certain issues" related to the investigation into the second-generation spectrum scam.

“In continuation of the ongoing investigations, I am here on Tuesday to personally clarify certain issues raised by the CBI," Chandra said in a statement issued by his publicist.

The firms have in the past denied any wrongdoing.
