New Delhi | Enforcement Directorate (ED) today pleaded before the Supreme Court that the properties of Dayanidhi Maran, his brother Kalanithi, attached in Aircel-Maxis deal case should not be released.
ED contended that the Special 2G Court should be directed not to accept bonds furnished by Maran brothers after their discharge in the case. SC in turn directed ED to file proper petition and listed the matter for further hearing.
Earlier the Special 2G Court discharged former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran, his industrialist brother and promoter Kalanithi Maran and others in the Aircel-Maxis case.
In relief to Maran brothers, the court yesterday discharged them as well as others in the Aircel-Maxis deal case of CBI and ED, saying the charges were based on “misreading of official files”, speculation and surmises of the complainant.
Special CBI Judge O P Saini said no prima facie case warranting framing of charges against any of these accused was made out on the basis of materials placed on record.
