Ex-Telecom minister A Raja, whose homes in the Capital and in Tamil Nadu were searched by the CBI on Wednesday in connection with the 2G spectrum probe, was questioned by the agency sleuths during the raids.

Besides Raja, the CBI conducted searches at premises of R K Chandolia, his former personal secretary, Siddhartha Behuria, then DoT secretary, K Sridhar, then Member, Telecom Commission, A K Srivastava, then Deputy Director General, Access Service Wing, DoT, and his business partner Sadiqui Batcha, Managing Director of Chennai-based Greenhouse Exports.
