tinaNew Delhi, August 23; Tina Ambani on Friday appeared as a prosecution witness in the 2G spectrum case and told a special court that she had “no role” in the affairs of Reliance ADAG.

A day after her husband and Reliance ADAG Chairman Anil Ambani’s deposition as a CBI witness, she told the court that she has never been associated with any firm of Reliance ADAG.

“I have no role in Reliance ADAG as I am a housewife, run a hospital. I have never been associated with any Reliance ADAG company,” she told Special CBI Judge O.P. Saini.

Ms. Ambani was shown documents of various firms said to be associated with Reliance ADAG, including Zebra Consultant Pvt. Ltd., Swan Consultant Pvt. Ltd.

She, however, said she does not have “any knowledge” about these firms.

During her examination by CBI prosecutor K.K. Goel, she was shown various documents related to the case and she identified her signatures on them.

When she was asked to identify the signatures of Mr. Ambani on some of the documents, defence counsel objected to it saying when the Reliance ADAG Chairman had already identified his signatures then why was she being asked to identify them.

Senior advocate Harish Salve said that it seems that CBI is “doubting” Mr. Ambani’s signatures.

“They bring a witness and do not trust his/her memory. What is this?” Mr. Salve said, adding, “If he has appeared and has identified his signature then why are they showing her (Tina) his signatures. Are they doubting his (Anil Ambani’s) signature?”

To this, the judge told Mr. Salve, “I agree with you.”
