New Delhi: The CBI on Wednesday examined DMK leader Dayanidhi Maran in connection with its probe against him for allegedly using over 770 high-speed telephone lines at his three residences in Chennai and Delhi during his tenure as telecom minister between June 2004 and May 2007. The former telecom minister, sources said, has been asked to appear before the agency sleuths on Thursday also.
The CBI officials were tight-lipped about the questioning of Mr Maran. Sources said Mr Maran was questioned for nearly eight hours at the CBI headquarters by the agency’s Special
Task Force which is handling the investigation. Mr Maran refused to take questions from waiting reporters and left. The former telecom minister had been called on Monday, but did not turn up and approached the Madras High Court for interim anticipatory bail, which was granted to him on Tuesday. Earlier, the Madras High Court had granted bail to three officials of Sun TV, who were arrested by the CBI in connection with the case.
