The US-headquartered Motorola Inc primarily develops software to support the telecommunication business. Its Indian arm Motorola India Electronics Pvt Ltd, is a 100 per cent owned subsidiary of Motorola Inc, currently having software centres at Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Under the CBI scanner are certain Swiss bank accounts where one Delhi-based middleman promoting Motorola's interests has parked his money. Says CBI additional director Vijay Shankar Tiwari: "The investigations are on and may take some time. All I can say now is that we are going through the appropriate channels, and Interpol has been contacted." As to why the case has dragged on for so long, CBI joint director A.K. Suri says, "Sometimes cases get stuck, and then they move on."
