The Supreme Court Thursday extended by three months the deadline given to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to complete the probe in the Aircel-Maxis deal case. A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said the probe should be completed in three months.
Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the ED, said the agency needs some two-three months to complete the probe as it needs to confront some accused with several e-mails.
The apex court had in March given the ED a six-month deadline to complete the probe in the case.
The ED is probing a money-laundering case in the Aircel-Maxis matter arising out of 2G spectrum cases.
