Special CBI Judge O P Saini, who was scheduled to hear the matter today, deferred the case after counsel for CBI and the accused sought more time. "Put up for December 19 for final arguments," the judge said.
During the brief hearing, Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Anand Grover said that he required some more time to advance his arguments.

The SPP's submission came after Vijay Aggarwal, counsel for Swan Telecom promotor Shahid Balwa, one of the accused asked the court how it can commence final hearing when an application has been moved by CBI for examining more witnesses. Earlier, on September 10, the court had concluded recording of defence evidence in the case.
The CBI had alleged that there was a loss of Rs 30,984 crore to the exchequer in allocation of 122 licences for 2G spectrum which were scrapped by the Supreme Court on February 2, 2012.
The special judge, who is exclusively dealing with 2G scam cases, had concluded recording of defence evidence in the case in which the CBI had examined 153 witnesses while the accused called 29 witnesses in their defence.
