Sibal abused his position as minister to over-rule the unanimous view taken by senior DoT officials including the Telecom Secretary, to benefit a private operator by closing the issue with only a penalty of Rs 5 crore.

An NGO on Thursday moved the Supreme Court seeking CBI probe against Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal and Attorney General G.E. Vahanvati in connection with 2G spectrum issue.

The application filed by Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) alleged that Mr. Sibal reduced the penalty to Rs 5 crore from Rs 650 crore against Anil Ambani-headed RCOM for violations in the UASL agreement.

It alleged that Mr. Vahanvati disregarded the Law Ministry in giving opinion to Mr. Raja on 2G spectrum when he was Solicitor General in UPA-I government.

“Sibal abused his position as minister to over-rule the unanimous view taken by senior DoT officials including the Telecom Secretary, to benefit a private operator by closing the issue with only a penalty of Rs 5 crore.

“This abuse of authority by him to benefit Anil Ambani controlled Reliance Infocomm needs a thorough investigation by the CBI,” the application said.
