CBI questions Raja aide in 2G scam

New Delhi: CBI on Friday questioned Sadiq Pasha, a close aide of former Telecom Minister A Raja, in connection with the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

Official sources said Pasha was questioned by the agency about his links and possible business deals with the former minister.

Pasha owned certain firms which had alleged links to certain relatives of Raja. Pasha`s firms were also raided by the CBI late last year.

His firm is also under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate as part of its probe into the scam.

The Supreme Court is closely monitoring the multi-agency probe in the allocation of 2G spectrum to certain telecom firms.

The apex court has asked CBI and ED to submit status reports on their probe to it by February 10, when the 2G spectrum case will come up for hearing
