Supreme Court asks Maran to face trial in illegal telephone exchange case
Updated : July 30, 2018 02:12 PM IST
The Supreme Court today dismissed former Union telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran's plea and asked him to face trial in the case connected to the alleged setting up of "illegal" telephone exchanges to benefit his brother Kalanithi Maran's Sun TV Network.
Maran had challenged the Madras High Court's July 25 decision setting aside a CBI court order discharging him in the case.
A bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi and R Banumathi and Navin Sinha said it was not inclined to interfere in the matter and all the allegations could be dealt with during the trial.
