In Aircel-Maxis controversy a Delhi court on Friday extended its date till March 25, the case was filed by ED and CBI in which the interim protection from arrest was granted to former Union Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti.

Special Judge OP Saini adjourned the matter after senior advocate Sonia Mathur, appearing for the CBI, sought time to argue on their anticipatory bail applications.

During the hearing, senior advocates Kapil Sibal and AM Singhvi, appearing for the father-son duo, opposed the adjournment sought by the agencies, saying a lot of time has been spent since the filing of the applications.


The infamous 2G spectrum scam nexus to Aircel-Maxis case, Dayanidhi Maran who was the Telecom Minister in 2011 was a probe by CBI on the orders of  Supreme Court. During the investigation, Maran had to resign from the Union Cabinet in April 2011.

Certainly, Aircel is the telecom industry owned by Sivasankaran and Maxis is a Malaysian company owned by T Ananda Krishna. Both the companies allied and in 2006 Maxis acquired Aircel by buying 74% stake.

In April 2011, Sivasankaran complained to the CBI that Maran had arm-twisted him to sell his stake to Maxis. In October 2011, the CBI filed an FIR against Maran that alleged that he received Rs 549 crore for favouring Aircel in various deals that were owned by Maxis.
