The CBI is likely to receive by next week the documents it sought from Mauritius through Letter Rogatory in connection with the companies allegedly involved in the 2G spectrum allocation scam. Sources in the probe agency said some parts of the documents have been handed over to Indian High Commissioner in Mauritius by the local authorities, while some more are expected soon which will be forwarded to the CBI.

The documents are likely to give boost to CBI’s prosecution in the 2G spectrum case as it prepares to file another charge sheet in the case.

Last month, Supreme Court of Mauritius had directed its Attorney General to collect and provide, as soon as possible, information about companies allegedly involved in the case as sought by the CBI through its judicial requests.

The agency is looking for share patterns of nearly a dozen companies after it was found that all of them had a common address of a building in Mauritian capital Port Louis, CBI sources said.

As many as 10 different entities named in connection with the 2G scam have a common address — The Les Cascades Building on the Edith Cavell Street in Port Louis.

The CBI has sent its Letter Rogatory seeking details of business and financial transactions of these companies to unravel the money trail of companies which are under scanner in the spectrum allocation case, they said.
