New Delhi, May 25: The court here hearing the 2G spectrum allocation case against former communications minister A. Raja and others on Monday said that fil arguments will be conducted on daily basis from July 14. Special Judge O.P. Saini deferred the matter for July 14 after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and accused sought an adjournment on the plea that the case is voluminous, is highly complex and technical in ture and some more time was needed for them to go through the files.

The court allowed the plea, however, made it clear to both parties that no further adjournment would be granted and the matter would be heard regularly on day-to-day basis. The CBI on April 15 commenced the fil argument in the case alleging that Raja misled then prime minister Manmohan Singh on policy matters related to 2G spectrum allocation. According to the CBI, Raja was biased in allocating 2G mobile airwaves and operating licences to telecom firms, causing a huge loss to the state exchequer. The court framed charges on October 22, 2011, against 14 accused and three companies under various provisions of the Indian Pel Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act. (IANS)
