2G scam: CBI submits status report in Supreme Court

By Abdul Nisar

New Delhi, Nov 29 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday submitted its status report in the 2G spectrum scam to the Supreme Court.

The apex court will hear the case on Tuesday.

In the last hearing, the Supreme Court slammed the CBI, asking it why it had take more than a year to investigate the matter.

The report may give details about the materials they have examined, the calls intercepted and also over eight thousand documents that were examined.

The apex court, earlier on November 25, had castigated the CBI on why it had not questioned Raja and the Telecom Secretary in the case, saying the agency was "beating around the bush" when "illegality is prima facie evident."

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report is replete with remarks about direct involvement of Raja in the irregularities," observed the Supreme Court bench.

A report tabled in the Parliament recently held Raja responsible for causing losses estimated at rupees 1.76 trillion to the exchequer in the 2G telecom spectrum allotments by favouring some operators and not resorting to auction.

The report further states that Raja had no apparent logical or valid reason to ignore the advice of the Law and Finance Ministries while allocating telecom spectrum to several firms in 2007-08. (ANI)
