It has been claimed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday that it will take into consideration allegations made against former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in connection with the Aircel-Maxis case once it finishes looking into the status report filed by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate in a sealed cover. A new fresh status report into the 2G scam by the CBI has been undertaken by a bench of Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra. According to the charge sheets filed by the CBI in Aug 2014, it would find out the details about the circumstances under which the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance was allegedly approved in 2006 by Mr. Chidambaram, then Finance Minister, in the Aircel-Maxis deal in which former Telecom Minister Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanidhi Maran have been charge-sheeted.
Therefore, the hearing has been adjourned to 23 September, where in the court will hear an application by Subramanian Swamy, the BJP leader against Mr. Chidambaram who was alleged of approving the FIPB clearance to the Aircel-Maxis deal on March 7, 2006.
