2G ‘collusion’ tape to be produced in SC today Zeebiz Bureau

New Delhi: The audio tape purportedly containing voices of CBI prosecutor AK Singh, who has since been removed from the 2G scam investigation, and accused Unitech Managing Director Sanjay Chandra, will now be a part of the status report. The status report will be presented here in the Supreme Court on Monday.

An inquiry sought by the CBI revealed that Singh was colluding with Chandra by sharing legal information and strategy of the case.

Meanwhile, sources say that a forensic examination of the CD purportedly carrying conversation between Singh and Chandra discussing ways to allegedly weaken the 2G case had showed it was authentic.

Suspecting corporate rivalry behind the audio tape leak, the CBI had earlier questioned its own officials to find whether Singh had advised them to suppress any information during court hearings.

Unitech had rejected the allegations saying Chandra had never met the prosecutor in the 2G case outside the court or had any phone conversation with him.

The company has also denied that Chandra's voice was on the tape and said it appeared a fabricated voice recording sent anonymously to CBI.
