The textile Minister Mr.Dayanidhi Maran has quit his Ministry post today.

The reason is   he allegedly twisted the person   who owned Aircel, to sell the mobile services company to Maxis. This he achieved by delaying grant of licences to Aircel as long as it was in the hands of that person. Once his buddy, who owns Maxis, had control, the licences were all his.

The CBI, which is investigating the 2G spectrum scandal. The sleuths' case was strengthened by C Sivasankaran, a witness in the 2G case, who testified he was coerced into giving up his company to Maxis. That made Maran's position shaky. The CBI might have taken things easy, but the Supreme Court is keeping a close eye on its investigations.
