Mauritius apex court agrees to help CBI in 2G scam probe
New Delhi: Acting on a request from India`s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Supreme Court of Mauritius has directed the country`s attorney general to investigate the money trail linked to those allegedly involved in irregularities in the 2G spectrum allocation, officials said Friday.
"The Supreme Court of Mauritius has agreed to help the CBI in its probe in money trail and will provide information we sought within a month," said a CBI official.
The request was made by a joint team of the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED), who went to Mauritius last week to probe the routing of the kickbacks in the 2G scam to that ountry under the guise of investments.
"The team will also visit Cyprus day after tomorrow (Saturday). The joint team left for Mauritius and Cyprus last week," said the official.
The team went to seek information about companies that got spectrum allocations in 2008 and may have routed kickbacks by way of loan, equity and investments.
The CBI has in its possession documents indicating that a huge sum of money has been parked in Cyprus. Many companies under investigation have their subsidiaries in Mauritius.
The official said the CBI team may also visit other countries for investigation in the case.
