Responding to ED, the apex court asked ED to file proper petition. SC listed the matter for hearing on February 8.

On Thursday, Maran was exonerated by a Delhi court in Aircel-Maxis case along with his brother and all other accused.

Soon after given clean chit by the court, Maran claimed that he was a victim and the case against him was "politically motivated".

"I was a victim and I had to suffer for 6 long years to prove that I was innocent," he had said.

CBI had filed a charge sheet against the Maran brothers, Ralph Marshall, T Ananda Krishnan and four firms -- M/s Sun Direct TV (P) Ltd, M/s Astro All Asia Networks Plc, UK, M/s Maxis Communications Berhad, Malaysia, M/s South Asia Entertainment Holdings Ltd, Malaysia -- and then Additional Secretary (Telecom) J S Sarma, who had died during the course of the probe.
