    Published on May 6, 2011

    The Enforcement Directorate on Friday moved the Supreme Court seeking initiation of contempt of court proceedings against Sahara group CMD Subrato Roy for allegedly interfering into the investigation of the 2G spectrum scam.

    The petition filed by the ED investigating officer Rajeshwar Singh alleged that the notice was served to Roy to appear before it relating to a Rs 150 crore transaction suspected to be linked to the 2G spectrum scam.

    The petition mentioned before a bench comprising justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly alleged that Roy not only appeared before the ED but also tried to blackmail the investigating officer.

    The petition also named some of the journalists of Sahara Samay.

    The petition was mentioned by senior advocate K K Venugopal and the bench will hear it at 2 pm.
