The Enforcement Directorate’s probe into alleged money laundering in the Aircel-Maxis deal in the 2G spectrum allocation scam has gathered momentum with the agency having questioned former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanithi over the past few days.
An ED source said the two brothers were questioned over the past week and their statements were recorded. Summons were issued to them by the ED in October.
Sources said that with the questionings, the ED is gearing up to issue an attachment order for seizing assets valued at around Rs. 600 crore as proceeds of crime.
The CBI had filed a chargesheet in the Aircel-Maxis deal case on August 29 against the two brothers. It charged former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran with criminal conspiracy and making illegal pecuniary gains.
