New Delhi: Former corporate lobbyist Niira Radia might heave a sigh of relief finally as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the income tax department have found no element of criminality in her telephonic conversations with various persons in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation scam.
As per a newspaper report, both the departments will apprise the Supreme Court of the development relating to transcription of the conversations.
CBI had named Radia as a witness in the case in its April 2, 2011 chargesheet, in which it named former communications minister A Raja and others as accused in the case.
Radia was the owner and promoter of Vaishnavi Group, a public relations firm that had both Tata Group and Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Ltd as its top clients.
The leakage of the tapes containing conversations between Radia and others including politicians, top corporates like Ratan Tata and media persons had created a major controversy.
