2G: Raja aide Chandolia accuses CBI of blackmail

New Delhi: Former telecom Minister A Raja's close aide RK Chandolia on Friday accused the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) of blackmailing him in connection with the 2G case.

Raja's private secretary claimed that the probe agency bargained with him to become a witness or an accused in the spectrum scam.

"They roped me in because after one year of investigation, the CBI bargained with me that either you become a witness or be an accused," said Chandolia.

Defending himself in the 2G case, Chandolia said that he was not the decision making authority.

"I was assisting my minister. Can an assistant ask his lord what decision have you made. I am not concerned whether their decision is right or wrong. I am no one, just a pawn in the chess game. I challenge the CBI. Let them show one sign on a single document. There are a number of people who have signed on papers but CBI has not called them in," said Chandolia.

Saying that the Tatas and Nira Radia are equal conspirators in the 2G scam, Chandolia accuses the CBI of letting them off.

"Why is the CBI not going near Ratan Tata and Nira Radia? If I committed a crime then so are Tata and Radia on equal footing," he said.
