NEW DELHI: A local court on Monday issued fresh summons to four accused, including Malaysian businessman T A Ananda Krishnan in the Aircel-Maxis case.

CBI Special Judge O P Saini issued fresh summons to Krishnan, Augustus Ralph Marshall and the two accused firms, Maxis Communications Berhad of Malaysia and Astro All Asia Networks, for December 7.

The order came after the CBI informed the court that Malaysian authorities were not cooperating in serving the summons on the accused in the case.

According to the CBI, the Indian High Commission and Ministry of Home Affairs(MHA) had  thrice tried to get the summons served on Krishnan, Marshall and the accused firms, but did not get any positive response from them and requested the court to issue fresh summons to the accused.

Former Union Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi Maran and authorised representative of the accused firm-- Chennai-based Sun Direct TV-- were present in the court during the hearing.
