NEW DELHI: A special CBI court on Saturday reserved its order for September 6 on the issue of whether it has jurisdiction to hear the Aircel-Maxis case in which former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanithi Maran have been summoned as accused. The development came a day after the Delhi High Court refused to intervene in the CBI’s probe into the Aircel-Maxis deal.
Special Judge O P Saini reserved order in both the cases filed by the ED and the CBI. The Marans submitted that the Aircel-Maxis dispute was a private matter and not part of the 2G spectrum scam. “Therefore, the court designated to deal exclusively with the 2G scam could not hear the matter,” Marans’ counsel said.
