Hearing on ex-telcom secy's bail plea deferred to March 15

Special CBI judge O P Saini deferred the hearing on Behura's counsel request to hear his bail plea on March 15 when the court is also slated to adjudicate his plea to defreeze his bank account frozen by CBI after his arrest.

On February 28, CBI had opposed the bail plea on the ground that some crucial documents of a telecom firm, given to the Department of Telecom for allocation of 2G spectrum to it and which form crucial evidence in the scam, has gone missing from the Department.

Behura, Raja and the latter's personal secretary R K Chandolia had been arrested for allegedly misusing their official positions in allocating spectrum licences to various ineligible telecom operators.
