The News Minute | January 22, 2015 | 08.00 am IST Three arrests including Dayanidhi Maran’s personal secretary have been made by the Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday in relation to the telephone exchange scam. Sun TV’s Chief Technical Officer S Kannan, KS Ravi, an electrician at Sun TV’s office as well as V Gowthaman, Dayandhi Maran’s then additional Private Secretary have been arrested by the CBI in relation to the illegal telephone exchange scam. The arrests come after the revelation about a telephone exchange scam where illegal phone lines were sourced from Maran’s residence to the Sun TV office in Chennai. It was then alleged that he had used 300 government-owned phone lines for Sun TV. A case had then been filed against Dayanidhi Maran saying that hundreds of high-speed telephone lines allotted to his residence were actually routed to SUN TV’s office. The CBI began its enquiry in the issue in 2011 and registered a case against Dayanidhi Maran. Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
