2G Spectrum scam: Court defers case to October 25

2G Spectrum

New Delhi: A court here on Wednesday adjourned the 2G spectrum allocation cases against former Telecom Minister A Raja, DMK Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi and others to October 25.

CBI Special Judge OP Saini deferred the matter observing that documents filed in the case are voluminous and technical in nature which were still under perusal.

The judge said that it might take substantial time and deferred the matter for October 25 for further clarification, if required.

The court said that the date of judgment will be finalised on the next date of hearing.

The court was hearing two separate cases related to 2G spectrum cases. One is being probed by the CBI and the other by the Enforcement Directorate.

On April 26, the court had concluded final arguments in the case.

According to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Raja was biased in allocating 2G mobile air waves and operating licences to telecom firms, causing a huge loss to the state exchequer.

The CBI chargesheet said Rs 200 crore were transferred from DB Group to Kalaignar TV, which were kickbacks in lieu of allocation of 2G spectrum to Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd.
