New Delhi: The CBI has filed a case against the then Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran and BSNL officials for allegedly allotting over 300 high-speed telephone lines to Maran’s residence in Chennai which were extended to his brother Kalanithi Maran’s channel Sun TV.
CBI sources said an FIR was filed following its preliminary enquiry when it found enough material to proceed with a regular case against Dayanidhi Maran and BSNL officials — the then CGM K. Bramhanathan and M.P. Veluswami.
The agency which had registered the enquiry into allegations in 2011 had wrapped up its probe in July. Dayanidhi Maran could not be reached for reaction either over the phone or text messages.
The sources said the 323 residential lines were allegedly in the name of a BSNL General Manager connecting the Chennai residence of Dayanidhi Maran with the office of Sun TV through a dedicated underground cable during his tenure as Telecom Minister.
The probe had started in 2011, nearly four years after getting complaints that a ‘virtual’ telephone exchange was allegedly set-up at the then Telecom Minister’s for facilitating data transfer from Sun TV.
The agency had recommended action to the then Telecom Secretary in 2007 but the department allegedly did not give its nod in the case, they said.
Finally, CBI had filed a preliminary inquiry in the case in 2011, they said.
The sources said these lines were not ordinary telephone lines but costly ISDN, capable of carrying huge data thus facilitating faster transmission of TV news and programmes across the globe.
The CBI in its report to the Telecom Secretary had alleged that these lines were for use of large commercial enterprises to meet special needs such as video conferencing or transmission of huge volume of digital data for which heavy fee is charged but Sun TV got it for free.

    ”LALU GOT THE PUNISHMENT OF 1990’s AND THIS CASE IS OF 2000 AND ODD HENCE, THE PUNISHMENT WOULD TAKE PLACE AFTER 2020 OR WOULD BE DISPOSED OFF IN HIS FAVOUR SINCE, THE APEX COURT IS HEADED BY THE PREMIER OF DMK’s TINGE? THIS CASE IS LONG OVERDUE IN ADDITION TO THE COURT TRIAL OF PC’s ELECTION PETITION. DMK HAS PROVED EXTRAORDINARY LOOTERS WITH SCIENTIFIC MEANS NEEDS EXTRA NUCLEAR METHOD TO DISCOVER AND HIGHLIGHT TO THE COURT IN GENERAL AND COMMON IN PARTICULAR. ALAGIRI SON’S MINING FACT COULD BE BROUGHT TO LIGHT WITH LAZER EQUIPMENT SINCE, BURRED TO THAT FATHOM” ”LALU GOT JAIL FOR 35 CRORES ONLY BUT THIS FELLOW’S LOOT OVER THE STATED SUPRA IS MORE THAN 450 CRORES TO THE EXCHEQUER AS PER THE CAG REPORT”
    ”THE CBI SHOULD HAVE ATTACHED KALAIGNAR TV AND NOW SUN TV BUT THEY ATTACHED ONLY THE SAKSHI TV AND THE STYLE OF FUNCTIONING OF THIS AGENCY IS CLEAR FOR SELECTIVE ON WHOSE TASTE?”

    This person has done wrong and so he is now under prosecution. But there are many more politicians and bureaucrats who have been left out. This guy got done in because he is not in favour with the powers that be.
