P Chidambaram
New Delhi, Sept 20: The Central government and the CBI on Tuesday, Sept 20 rejected the plea to initiate an investigation against Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram over 2G spectrum scam.

The investigating agency, Central Bureau of investigation (CBI) also claimed that the Supreme Court can not interfere and direct them (CBI) to start a probe, though it accepted that the trial court can direct them about the investigation in the second generation telecom spectrum scam.

Earlier the apex court had asked Janata Party president, Subramaniam Swamy to table proofs against Chidambaram. Swamy accused Chidambaram of conspiring with former telecom minister, A Raja.

Chidambaram has been accused of being present during the 2G auction and setting the prices for the spectrum between Jan 2008 to Jul 2008.

Earlier CBI and UPA were criticised for being biased in the whole 2G spectrum scam. CBI had faced huge criticism over providing clean chit to Dayanidhi Maran, the former textile minister. However, the investigative agency soon corrected their "mistake" and submitted a new report accusing Maran over the scandal.
