2G collusion: CPIL files plea in SC demanding FIR on the basis of CNN-IBN revelation

New Delhi: The Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) has filed an application in the Supreme Court in the 2G case saying an FIR should be registered on the basis of the CNN-IBN revelation.

CNN-IBN accessed tapes where former CBI prosecutor AK Singh is allegedly talking to Unitech MD Sanjay Chandra. The application also says tapes should sent for forensic examination to multiple laboratories and a new CBI prosecutor should be appointed.

Meanwhile, the CBI will file its status report on the audio tapes. In the report the CBI will reveal what action has been taken against Sanjay Chandra and AK Singh after the alleged taped conversation came to light.

A Joint Parliamentary Committee, which is also investigating the case, had summoned CBI director Ranjit Sinha on Tuesday. The CBI removed AK Singh as the lead prosecutor after he was allegedly heard talking to Chandra.

The CBI had sent the CD containing voice samples of lead prosecutor in Singh, who was the lead prosecutor in the 2G spectrum case, and Sanjay Chandra to the forensic laboratory.

A preliminary enquiry by the CBI had found that Singh had colluded with Chandra, an accused in the case. CBI officials say the forensic report will be available in a few weeks time. Meanwhile, Chandra was once again questioned by the CBI on Friday.
