Court to hear final plea in 2G scam today

A Delhi court is likely to commence hearing  the final arguments  in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case on Monday involving former Telecom Minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and 15 others.

Special CBI judge O P Saini, who had concluded recording of defence evidence in the case on September 10, had fixed the case for November 10 for hearing the final arguments. The CBI had alleged that there was a loss of Rs 30,984 crore to the exchequer in allocation of 122 licences for 2G spectrum which were scrapped by the Supreme Court on February 2, 2012.

The special judge, who is exclusively dealing with 2G scam cases, had concluded recording of defence evidence in the case in which the CBI had examined 153 witnesses while the accused called 29 witnesses in their defence.

The recording of evidence in the case involving Raja and 16 others started three years ago on November 11, 2011, after the court framed charges against the 17 accused.
