Telecom officials tried to delay 2G spectrum probe: Ex-CVC

New Delhi: As the 2G spectrum case gets murkier, former Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) Pratyush Sinha has alleged that the telecom ministry officials were non-cooperative and had tried to delay the probe undertaken by the anti-corruption watchdog in the matter. 
   Sinha, who retired in August last year as CVC after a four-year tenure, said the ministry had disobeyed the commission’s advice and gave licenses on firstcome first-serve basis as against auctioning.
   “There was delay on part of telecom ministry officials to reply to queries raised by the commission in its probe. But somehow, we managed to get the documents needed for the investigation. Based on the investigation, at a glance, it appeared that there had been certain lapses in following government policies,” he said. PTI
