Expanding its probe into the case related to intercepted communications of corporate lobbyist Niira Radia, the CBI is set to examine Tata Sons’ former chairman Ratan Tata and its current chief Cyrus Mistry in connection with the agency’s ongoing preliminary enquiries.
The agency is likely to examine Tata and Mistry in the next few days once they get a confirmation about their availability. The CBI plans to seek clarifications from the two in connection with its two enquiries registered on the basis of the intercepted conversations.
The matter related to supply of low floor buses by Tata Motors to the Tamil Nadu government under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) scheme of the Indian government is under enquiry by the Chennai branch of the CBI.
The allotment of iron ore mines at Ankua in Jharkhand’s Singhbhum district to Tata steel is also being enquired into, the CBI said. The agency said that though it has not found any criminality in its enquiries so far, it will seek clarification from Tata and Mistry over some issues regarding tapped conversations where references were made about these deals.
The CBI has already examined a journalist from a TV channel and a senior executive of a leading newspaper group in connection with its probe. Besides, executives of Reliance, Unitech and Tata Motors have also been examined by the agency in connection with its enquiries.

The CBI has registered 14 preliminary enquiries into issues of alleged corruption arising in the communications of Radia intercepted by the Income Tax department.
Last year, a Supreme Court bench headed by Justice G S Singhvi had identified 23 issues, which were framed by an apex court-appointed team on the analysis of the tapped conversations of Radia with bureaucrats, politicians, corporate tycoons and scribes.
