The officials of Loop Telecom, under scanner in the 2G spectrum scam, met the Indian high commissioner to Mauritius and sought details about the Letters Rogatory sent by the CBI in connection with the probe into certain transactions by a dozen companies from that country.
The high commissioner M Ganapathi informed the ministry of external affairs, which in turn communicated to the CBI about the questions posed by Loop officials, agency sources said.
During the interaction, the Loop officials apprised him about operations of the company in Mauritius.
