ED concludes arguments in 2G scam

The trial of the money laundering case of the multi-crore 2G spectrum allocation scam on Thursday moved closer to its conclusion with the enforcement directorate concluding its final arguments.

The Special CBI Court fixed March 1 as next date of the case asking the defence to start final arguments in the case as the prosecution concluded its final arguments in the case.

The trasacation of Rs 200 crore between the DB Group of firms and DMK-run Kalaignar TV was nothing but a bribe to former telecom minister A Raja in lieu of 2G spectrum licences illegally granted to the accused in case, special public prosecutor Anand Grover contended, wrapping up his arguments on behalf of the ED.

The trial of both the main case of the 2G spectrum allocation scam and the money launder case are proceeding back to back towards their conclusion. Besides Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi’s ailing wife Dayalu Ammal are accused in both of the cases among others.

  The court has fixed February 1 as the date for defence counsels to start final arguments in the main case of the 2G spectrum allocation scam, after the CBI wrapped up its final arguments in the case on December 22, 2015.
