New Delhi, 24 Jul (PTI): Two days ahead of the scheduled deposition of Reliance ADAG Chairman Anil Ambani as a witness, one of his employees today faced the ire of a Delhi court for allegedly trying to influence a prosecution witness in the 2G case during the recording of his evidence.
The court was anguished as the ADA Group employee was allegedly “signalling” the witness to “say no” to a question during the cross examination.
“Why are you (RADAG’s employee) signalling to the witness? I have seen you giving signal to the witness to say no. Who are you? Why are you standing here in front? You go outside. I have seen you shaking your head,” Special CBI Judge O P Saini said.
The incident took place during the cross examination of prosecution witness Yogesh Sharma, President (Finance), Anant Raj Industries Ltd.
The special judge took exception that the RADAG employee was standing near his dais and directed him to go outside the court room.
After the RADAG’s employee left the courtroom, the judge told Sharma, “You will not look here and there. You answer me directly.”
The court concluded the recording of statement of Sharma.
Reliance ADAG Chairman Anil Ambani is scheduled to depose as a prosecution witness in the court on July 26.
Reliance ADA Group company Reliance Telecom Ltd and three top executives of the firm are facing trial in the case along with others, including former Telecom Minister A Raja.
