Sivasankaran also alleged that after the change of ownership, Malaysian group Maxis invested in Dayanidhi’s brother Kalanidhi Maran’s company Sun Direct TV Private Limited at a premium of around `550 crore. Maxis is owned by Malaysian businessman T Anand Krishna.
According to sources, the CBI had sent letter rogatory to Malaysia to seek more information about the investment made by the Maxis group in Sun Direct TV.
“A response on letter rogatory was received from Malaysian authorities. After examining it, the CBI sought further information but we are yet to get to reply on that,” said a CBI official requesting anonymity.
Investigators say their probe into the deal in India is complete and on the basis of evidence gathered so far a chargesheet can be filed.
