2G: Will Chidambaram face CBI probe? To be decided today

On Thursday, Dec 8 a Delhi court will deliver its order on Janata Party Chief Subramanian Swamy's, plea against Home Minister, P Chidambaram.

Swamy pleaded the court to name Chidambaram as a co-accused in the scam case and let the CBI probe his alleged involvement in the scam that India has ever seen - what they call as the 2G spectrum scam.

Chidambaram was the Finance Minister, when A Raja, former Telecom Minister, allegedly conspired the 2G allocation scam. According to Swamy, the former FM deliberately supported Raja's fraud-scheme and let the scam happen. Hence, even Chidambaram should share responsibility and be probed by the investigating agency.

Recently, Swamy claimed that he possess few documents that backs his claims against the present Home Minister.

Going forward, Swamy has sought court's permission to examine two witnesses, a Joint Director of the CBI and Joint Secretary in the Finance Ministry. He says, when he confronts these officials with few documents, it would give a clear picture of Chidambaram's role in 2G trail. And the court will decide on the permission for Swamy to examine these officials today.
