New Delhi, Oct 5: Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) move to close a Rs 800 crore telecom fraud case has met a roadblock as the Delhi Court's Special CBI Judge OP has taken up an appeal from the secretary of NGO Telecom Watchdog challenging the agency's bid .

The secretary of the NGO, Anil Kumar who has filed the objection in his personal capacity, has a 'locus standi' and therefore may file his opposition to the agency's report favouring closure of investigation, the judge said.

The court will be hearing the case involving 19 people, including the then CMD of MTNL on Monday, Oct 5.

The 'fraud' involves payments made against tender agreement with M/s Motorola India Ltd for establishing of CDMA-based WLL service for the state-owned MTNL.
