Taking a tough stand, the Supreme Court has given a six-month deadline to the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate to complete the investigations into the cases linked to the 2G scam, including the Aircel-Maxis deal.

A bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Naveen Sinha slammed the agencies for not completing their probe in all 2G spectrum cases and related cases arising out of it, including the Aircel-Maxis deal, saying "you can't keep the people of this country in the dark".

"Why is there so much delay in completing the investigation in the 2G spectrum and ancilliary cases".

In a separate writ petition in the apex court, Mr. Chidambaram called the CBI and ED probe into the Aircel-Maxis case as "illegal investigations". The court also asked if invisible hands were delaying the probes in the case. "This case is becoming like "touch me not", the bench said. The apex court also relieved senior advocate Anand Grover, who was appointed by it in 2014 as Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) in the 2G spectrum case. "We are anxious about this case, we are very unhappy", the bench said. Since the trial was over, the government is free to appoint any lawyer it wants to as the special public prosecutor, the court said. In 2012-13 DMK left the UPA government after CBI file a case following allegations against Dayanidhi Maran and other leaders of the party.

On December 21 a year ago, the trial court had acquitted DMK leaders Kanimozhi and A. Raja and 15 other accused in the 2G court for lack of evidence.

Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI) has challenged the verdict by the Patiala House Court, which dismissed the Aircel Maxis case.

The case goes back to 2006, when Foreign Investment Promotion Board's approval was granted to Aircel Maxis, during the tenure of the then finance minister P Chidambaram.
