Top industrialist Ratan Tata and corporate lobbyist Niira Radia were today quizzed by Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) in connection with alleged irregularities in the 2G spectrum allocation. Radia, whose tapped phone conversations with politicians, corporates, bureaucrats, and journalists form a key part of the investigations into the 2G spectrum scam, is believed to have told the Committee that some of the tapes of her purported talks were doctored.
“She told us that some tapes are genuine while some are doctored,” a member of the PAC said.
He said she was also asked about the letter Tata had reportedly written to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi praising the then Telecom Minister A Raja.
Radia, chairperson of Vaishnavi Corporate Communications, appeared before the PAC alongwith two senior colleagues Manoj Warrier and Yateesh Wahaal.
