Sun TV gets going after court ruling, surges nearly 27%

NEW DELHI, Feb 3:  Shares of Sun TV Network jumped nearly 27 per cent today to touch a one-year high mark after a special court discharged former telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran, his industrialist brother and promoter Kalanithi Maran and others in the Aircel-Maxis case.
After making a positive opening, the stock climbed 26.6 per cent to Rs 698.65 on BSE — its 52-week high.
At NSE, it soared 26.66 per cent to hit a one-year high of Rs 698.75.
In relief to Maran brothers, the court yesterday discharged them as well as others in the Aircel-Maxis deal case of CBI and ED, saying the charges were based on “misreading of official files”, speculation and surmises of the complainant.
Special CBI Judge O P Saini said no prima facie case warranting framing of charges against any of these accused was made out on the basis of materials placed on record. (PTI)
