Why ex-CAG Vinod Rai tendered apology to Sanjay Nirupam in 2014 defamation case
Former CAG Vinod Rai has tendered an unconditional apology to Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam for "wrongly mentioning" him as one of the MPs who had pressured him not to name former prime minister Manmohan Singh in the CAG report on 2G spectrum allocation. Nirupam had filed a defamation case against Rai after the former CAG in his book in 2014 made the allegation against him and repeated it in interviews to the media. The court of Metropolitan Magistrate in Patiala House has disposed of the case after recording Nirupam's statement accepting Rai's apology. Nirupam later said Rai should apologise to the country over the CAG reports on 2G spectrum and coal block allocations, alleging that these were both "bogus". Watch the full video for more details.
