CBI registered a case against four officials of the state-owned MTNL and employees of private company for irregularities in broadcast network contract for the 2010 Commonwealth Games (CWG), an official said Wednesday.
An FIR was registered against two
top officials, some of their juniors in the government-run
telecom service provider MTNL and nine distributors for
allegedly cheating the firm to the tune of Rs seven crore.
In a bizarre case, government counsels on Thursday told the Delhi High Court that R S P Sinha is still the CMD of telecom PSU MTNL despite his reported resignation earlier this week inviting some strong comments from the Bench.
The Delhi HC rejected MTNL Chairman-cum-MD RSP Sinha`s
request to give details of his phone calls intercepted by CBI
regarding his alleged involvement with a conduit in the tender
given to equipment supplier Motorola in 1999.
The state-run telecom companies--BSNL and MTNL-- have not formed any consortium so far with any other company to bid for Kuwaiti telecom major Zain Telecom, Minister of State for IT and telecom Gurudas Kamat said.
