Former Telecom Minister A Raja has said he will cooperate with the CBI to prove his innocence in the wake of the probe agency conducting searches at his residence in connection with the 2G spectrum scam.
"It is a scrutiny. I will fully cooperate with the agency (CBI). Whatever be the procedure, I have to comply with it," he said.
On CBI raids at his residence as well on the premises of his aides in Delhi and Tamil Nadu, Raja said in Chennai on Friday, "No one is above scrutiny. I am ready for any procedure. If anything is needed by CBI, I will cooperate. That is all I want to say."
On December 8, the CBI had conducted searches at Raja and his aides' residences in Delhi and Tamil Nadu, including the former union minister's native Perambalur district.
They also questioned Raja's key aide Sadiq Basha, besides conducting raids at the residences of the DMK leader's brother and sister at Tiruchirapalli and other relatives in Chennai.
Raja had quit as Telecom Minister after the CAG quantified the losses caused in allocation of 2G spectrum at throwaway prices at around Rs 1.76 lakh crore.
