Supreme Court asks Maran to face trial in illegal telephone exchange case

The Supreme Court today dismissed former Union telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran's plea and asked him to face trial in illegal telephone exchange case. 

The case is related to the alleged setting up of illegal telephone exchanges to benefit Maran's brother's Sun TV Network. 

Maran had challenged the Madras High Court's July 25 decision setting aside a CBI court order discharging him in the case. A bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi, R Banumathi and Navin Sinha said, it is not inclined to interfere in the matter.

The CBI has alleged that Maran had misused his official position when he was minister for communications and information technology in the UPA-1 government.

According to CBI, over 700 high- end telecommunication lines were installed at Maran's residences in Chennai for which bills were not raised, causing the exchequer a loss of 1 crore 78 lakh rupees.
