The court on Jun 2 also rejected the pleas against Reliance's Anil Ambani and DMK supremo M Karunanidhi's wife Dayalu Ammal. The pleas filed by Delhi-based journalist M Furquan and Ghaziabad's scrap dealer Dharmender Pandey asked the CBI to investigate the "accused" over 2G spectrum scam.
Dismissing the plea, the special court on 2G scam said, "The applications are not only devoid of any substance but are also contrary to law and deserve to be dismissed with heavy cost as application after application of this nature are being filed by third parties resulting into loss of precious time of the court. However, I am inclined to take a little lenient view as far as cost is concerned. Accordingly, both applications are dismissed, subject to nominal cost of Rs 10,000 each."
Earlier on the day the CBI claimed that no irregularities have been noticed while issuing 2G license to the telecom company. Ratan Tata and corporate lobbyist Niira Radia earlier were accused of irregularities in getting 2G license.
