Subramanian Swamy targets Ratan Tata, files criminal complaint in 2G issue

The Tata - Mistry war took a new turn as a criminal complaint was  filed by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy against Ratan Tata, former Telecom minister A Raja, former corporate lobbyist Niira Radia and others before a special court seeking their prosecution in relation to the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

The complaint, filed before special judge O P Saini, alleged that the CBI "purposely" left out Tata, his group companies, Radia, and some others. The court has put up the matter for consideration on January 11.


Swamy has also sought action against Unitech MD Sanjay Chandra, other officials of his firm and the "erring" CBI personnel who allegedly did not probe the matter seriously.

The complaint has sought their prosecution under several sections of IPC including 409 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating), 463 (forgery) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and under the relevant provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act and Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

This is not the first time Swamy has targetted Tata. Earlier, he  wrote a letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking for a probe against Ratan Tata, Interim Chairman, Tata Sons.  "The commission of offenses are under the IPC Sections 120B (Conspiracy), 403 (Dishonest misappropriation of public funds), 405 (Criminal Breach of trust), 415 (Cheating), prima facie documented in the letter written by Mistry," Swamy wrote in the letter.

Swamy asked Modi to direct a setting up of an SIT (Special Investigative Team) consisting of the CBI (for criminal offenses committed), Enforcement Directorate (for money laundering), SEBI (for violation of fiduciary and company laws) and prosecute Tata with full 'vigour' and without 'interference' of any government.
