The CBI alleged that Chandra violated hisbail conditions by approaching public prosecutor A K Singh to “influence the conduct and outcome of the trial”. “…It would be no longer conducive to a fair trial to allow the accused to retain his freedom during the trial,” the agency said. Chandra is an accused in the 2G case and was granted bail by the top court on November 23, 2011.
Under the bail conditions, he had been mandated by the top court not to directly or indirectly make any inducement, threat or promise to any person acquainted with the facts so as to dissuade him from disclosing these facts to the court or any other authority.
The investigating agency had earlier on Feb 6, 2013, filed a preliminary inquiry on the basis of an alleged conversation between Chandra and Singh, who allegedly advised the former on how to deal with three crucial witnesses and compromised the prosecution strategy
