New Delhi: An investigation by CNN-IBN into the 2G case has revealed that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) suspects its own prosecutor, AK Singh, of aiding one of the accused, Unitech MD Sanjay Chandra.
Reacting to the report, Unitech issued a statement on Monday, claiming that Chandra had never met the CBI prosecutor outside court in connection with the case, and neither did he have any telephonic conversation with him.
In the statement, Unitech said, "It appears a fabricated voice recording has been sent anonymously to the CBI. Any suggestion that Sanjay Chandra is linked with this recording is nothing but an attempt to malign him and prejudice his defence in the 2G case."
The company further assured that Sanjay Chandra was cooperating with the CBI in the investigation.
Here is the full statement by Unitech:
Sanjay Chandra is currently unavailable owing to bereavement in his family. However, he wishes to make it absolutely clear that he has never met the Prosecutor in the 2G case outside of Court or had any phone conversation with him. He denies the suggestion that his voice is on any alleged recording. It appears a fabricated voice recording has been sent anonymously to the CBI. Any suggestion that Sanjay Chandra is linked with this recording is nothing but an attempt to malign him and prejudice his defence in the 2G case. Increasingly, manipulated voice recordings are finding their way into the public domain with ulterior motives. Despite the bereavement in his family, Sanjay Chandra has joined the CBI's enquiries and has made his stand crystal clear. It is regrettable that CNN IBN did not deem it appropriate to wait for a determination by the CBI and forensic experts regarding the genesis and authenticity of the alleged voice recording before airing the same. It is re-iterated that the recording is a fabrication.
