Additional spectrum case: Hearing on Feb 6

A special 2G court on Tuesday fixed February 6 to hear the 2002 additional spectrum allocation scam case in which the CBI had chargesheeted former Telecom Secretary Shyamal Ghosh and three telecom firms. Special CBI Judge O P Saini fixed the case for Friday after the defence counsel told the court that they needed some documents from CBI which were filed along with charge sheet.

The court asked the CBI to provide the documents as sought by the counsel for the accused. The agency has already supplied the copies of charge sheet and documents filed along with it to the accused.

The court was  earlier informed that the Supreme Court has quashed the order summoning Bharti Cellular Ltd CMD Sunil Bharti Mittal and Essar Group promoter Ravi Ruia as accused in the case.

Hearing in the case was virtually stalled since April 26, 2013 interim order of the apex court which had said that proceedings against Mittal and Ruia, who had challenged trial court’s summoning order, will remain “postponed” until further orders.
