Follow us on:

Dec. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Indian investigators questioned Andimuthu Raja, the former telecommunications minister, for a second day as part of a probe into the allocation of mobile-phone airwaves, Press Trust of India reported.

The Central Bureau of Investigation questioned Raja in New Delhi and asked him about the allocation of spectrum and the possible involvement of his relatives in some companies, PTI reported yesterday, citing officials it didn’t identify.

On Dec. 8, the federal police searched the homes of Raja, who is at the center of a probe into a multibillion-dollar auction of mobile-phone licenses in 2008. Raja has denied any wrongdoing.

No one was available to comment today outside regular working hours when Bloomberg News contacted Raja’s New Delhi residence.
