CHENNAI: Former Union Telecommunication Minister Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanithi Maran of Sun TV Network, who appeared before the Special Court for CBI cases in connection with the multi-crore telephone exchange scam, have requested the judge to furnish typed set of copies of the charge-sheet to them.

When they appeared before the judge last week, they alleged that the documents furnished to them by the prosecuting agency were illegible. The CBI counsel then stated that it would furnish them a fresh set of documents.

When the matter came up on Friday, the duo claimed that even if new photo copies were taken, it would also give same result and requested typed set of copies.
The CBI counsel replied that it would require at least two weeks to provide the typed set of documents. And the XIV Additional Judge for CBI cases Natarajan posted the matter to September 8 for further hearing.

According to the CBI, Dayanidhi Maran, during the period of June 2004-December 2006, when he was Union Minister, misused his office and installed a private telephone exchange at his residences in Chennai and utilised the facility for business transactions and thereby caused a loss of `1.78 crore to the exchequer.
