New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday directed former Union Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran to appear before the CBI investigators for seven days, beginning November 30, in connection with a case relating to abuse of official position and loss to public exchequer.
Maran has been accused of installing 323 telephone lines at his Chennai residence which were allegedly used by his Sun TV. A bench led by Justice T S Thakur said he would not be arrested but he must cooperate in the probe and should answer questions of the investigators.
The Supreme Court, however, has extended interim protection from arrest to Maran in the case.
