New Delhi: Former telecom minister A Raja and his staff had threatened and coerced officials in giving preference to Swan Telecom and Unitech over Tata group in the award of telecom licences, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), India's premier investigation agency has informed the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probing the second generation (2G) spectrum allocation scam, reports PTI.
CBI director AP Singh who gave a detailed presentation on various aspects of spectrum allocation scam on 7th June told the panel that two officers who did not put the file, giving preference to Swan Telecom over Tata Teleservices (TTSL), were transferred by secretary (telecom) Siddarth Behura 'in league with' Mr Raja's private secretary RK Chandolia.
He told the JPC that the then wireless advisor RP Aggarwal was given "credible threat of consequences" and was forced to put up a note for allocating spectrum to Swan in the Delhi circle, which was approved by Mr Behura and Mr Raja.
Giving details of the conspiracy at the Sanchar Bhavan (Department of Telecom- DoT), Mr Singh told the JPC that TTSL got in principle approval for use of dual technology in 20 circles along with letters of intent given to new licensees on 10 January 2008.
The company complied with the conditions and applied to Wireless Planning and Co-ordination for spectrum.
The applications filed by TTSL went missing from the DoT and the company was asked to file fresh applications on 5 March 2008 whereas the licences were signed for new applicants Swan and Unitech, the director told the JPC.
He also described the relationship between Reliance Telecom and Swan Telecom saying the Anil Ambani-headed company structured in a manner that their association would remain under wraps.
Reliance Infocomm spokesperson refused to comment on the issue.
