The CBI has moved the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of bail of Sanjay Chandra,MD of Unitech Ltd,who is an accused in the 2G spectrum allocation case,alleging that he tried to “sabotage the trial”. The agency alleged that Chandra misused the relief given to him and has violated the terms and conditions of bail and sought to recall apex court’s November 23,2011 order by which he was granted relief.
CBI alleged that the conduct of Chandra was questionable during the period of bail as he had approached prosecutor A K Singh and was found discussing about crucial witnesses. His conversation with the prosecutor who was removed from the case reflected that the entire strategy of the CBI in dealing with the case was compromised,it said. The recorded conversation between Chandra and Singh was leaked to the media.
“It is clear from the conduct of the accused that there has been a clear and direct attempt to sabotage the conduct of this trial and to impact its outcome. “It is apparent that the freedom granted to the accused by means of enlargement from custody has been misused by him and that allowing him to continue unabated will be detrimental to the conduct of this trial and to the greater public interest,” CBI said in its application.
It said that Chandra has “materially interfered” with the prosecution of the 2G case in an “attempt to influence” the conduct and outcome of the trial going on before a special CBI court.
