Apex court appoints Lalit prosecutor in 2G case

A Bench of justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly did not find any substance in the contention of the government, which had maintained that the special public prosecutor should be a lawyer working under the central government  or the state for not less than seven years under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

“Lalit satisfies the said requirement quite adequately. Therefore, we are unable to accept the contention of the Union of India and we hold that in the interest of a fair prosecution of the case, the appointment of  U U Lalit is eminently suitable,” the court stated.
