2G scam : HC grants more time to Raja, Kanimozhi to file reply on CBI plea

New Delhi, Aug 10: The Delhi High Court on Friday granted more time to former Telecom Minister A. Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and others in the 2G spectrum case to file their replies to a CBI plea challenging their acquittal. Justice Najmi Waziri allowed the pleas of some accused seeking more time to file response on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) petition and listed the matter for October 9 for further hearing. The Unitech has also filed a reply which was taken on record by the court. The court was hearing the central probe agency’s plea challenging a special court’s order acquitting Raja, Kanimozhi and others in the 2G spectrum case. The special court on December 21, 2017 had acquitted all accused in the 2G spectrum allocation case. While announcing the judgement, special judge O.P. Saini said the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate had failed to provide sufficient evidence to prove the charges against 33 persons named in the case. (IANS)
