DoT seeks time to file reply on Loop Telecom’s plea

Department of Telecommunication (DoT) on Tuesday sought six weeks from a special court to file its response on a plea by Loop Telecom Ltd, facing trial in a case relating to the probe into the 2G spectrum allocation scam, for referring the matter to the Lok Adalat. A DoT official, who appeared in the court, told Special CBI Judge O P Saini that he has got an instruction from the department to seek time to file reply which was scheduled to be furnished on Tuesday.

The court told the department that it would not grant six weeks time to file the reply as the matter was pending for a long time. “DoT seeks time to file reply. Reluctantly allowed. Put up for reply, if any, of DoT on February 18,” the court said. Loop Telecom Ltd is facing trial in a case along with promoters of Essar Group, Ravi Ruia and Anshuman Ruia, and Loop promoters Kiran Khaitan, I P Khaitan and Essar Group Director Vikash Saraf.
