NEW DELHI: Maran brothers, Dayanidhi and Kalanithi, have reportedly submitted documents through their authorised representatives to the Enforcement Directorate on Monday, a day ahead of their scheduled appearances, in response to the summon issued in connection with the Aircel-Maxis deal.

According to directorate sources, ex-telecom minister Dayanidhi, who was asked to appear before the Enforcement Directorate on March 20, and his brother Kalanithi, scheduled to present himself before the directorate on March 21, have send official documents of their investments in their media company Sun TV Networks for investigators’ perusal. These documents will be scrutinised before they are asked to appear in person for final questioning in the case.

While sending the summons, investigators gave them the option of appearing in person or through their authorised representatives.

The directorate have registered case against the brothers under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. It has alleged that an illegal gratification of about Rs 550 crore was allegedly received by the Marans in the Aircel-Maxis deal.

Maran had resigned as from the Cabinet last year after allegations were made that he had favoured the Malaysian firm Maxis over Aircel in granting telecom licences in 2004-05. He had denied the allegations.
