A petition has been handed over to Tamil Nadu Chef Minister to initiate action against former Police Officer Jaffer Sait.
சவுக்கு தளத்தில், முன்னாள உளவுத்துறை தலைவர் ஜாபர் சேட் மற்றும், கலைஞர் டிவியின் மேலாண் இயக்குநர் சரத் குமார் ரெட்டி இடையேயான உரையாடல் சனியன்று வெளியிடப்பட்டது.
இந்த உரையாடல் அரசியல் மற்றும் அதிகாரிகள் வட்டாரத்தில் பெரும் பரபரப்பை ஏற்படுத்தியது. ஜாபர் சேட், காவல்துறை அதிகாரியாக செயல்படாமல், ஒரு அரசியல் தரகர் போல செயல்பட்டு வருவது குறித்தும், காவல் துறை அதிகாரியாக தன் அதிகாரத்தை துஷ்பிரயோகம் செய்தது குறித்தும், நீதிபதி தலைமையில் ஒரு விசாரணை ஆணையத்தை நியமித்து, முழுமையான விசாரணை நடத்த வேண்டும் என்று தமிழக முதல்வருக்கு புகார் அனுப்பப் பட்டுள்ள…
In a move that portends more trouble for the DMK chief’s daughter, the CBI has decided to analyse the taped conversations which the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claims as additional “evidence” in the 2G scam showing alleged roles of Karunanidhi, his daughter Kanimozhi and the top cop from Tamil Nadu.
“A conversation which is said to have been taken place in February-March, 2011 purportedly between Sharad Kumar and Jaffar Sait, has come to the notice of CBI through media reports,” the CBI spokesperson said in a statement.
The CBI is in the process of obtaining the recordings and transcripts of these conversations, the spokesperson said.
“We will first establish the veracity and genuineness of these tapes,” a senior CBI officer said. In its charge sheet in 2G scam, CBI alleged that Kalaignar TV, in which Kanimozhi and her mother Dayalu Ammal had 80 per cent stake, allegedly received Rs 214-crore from Shahid Balwa’s Dynamix Realty, Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables and Cineyug Films in return of favours given to Swan Telecom by then Telecom Minister A Raja in 2G spectrum allocation.
Kanimozhi, who was also charged under provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act, had claimed that this amount was an unsecured loan which had been returned.
Meanwhile, speaking to reporters in Chennai, DMK chief M Karunanidhi denied allegations and charges by Bhushan that there was an attempt to cover up the corruption charges against Kanimozhi. The DMK chief turned all his ire at Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and asked the reporters: “What corruption? What allegations? You go and ask Jayalalithaa about her disproportionate assets”.
The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister is facing trial in a special court in Bangalore in the disproportionate asset case filed against her by the Karunanidhi regime (1996 to 2001).
In one of the tapes released by Bhushan, Sharad Kumar, who is also an accused in the 2G case, is heard telling Jaffar Sait that Kanimozhi was indeed a Director of the TV channel when kickbacks in the scam flowed into the TV company. This admission will be a great blow to Kanimozhi, who has been arguing in court that she was not a Director during the period when the TV channel received the alleged bribes from companies linked to another accused Shahid Balwa.
Though the CBI had demolished Kanimozhi’s arguments in the 2G court with proof during trial, the leaked tapes are further evidence of her complicity in the scam.
The conversations took place between February 2011, when the CBI started questioning Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar. In the leaked tapes, Sharad Kumar is heard talking about forging documents to save Kanimozhi. The tapes were believed to have been leaked by A Sankar, former employee of Tamil Nadu State Vigilance who runs a website called Savukku.
