LTL wants spl court to commit ‘mistake’, violate SC order: CBI
CBI argued that LTL, whose similar petition was dismissed by the court in March last year, has again filed the plea in the special court which cannot review its earlier order on the issue.

"This court has already passed an order on the issue and it cannot review it," Senior public prosecutor K K Goel told Special CBI Judge O P Saini.

The prosecutor further said, "Why they (accused) are not going to Supreme Court on this issue? Why they want this court to commit a mistake or pass an illegal order?"

CBI argued that apex court had categorically ordered that only the special court would hear matters of 2G spectrum scam and "if this court will write in its order that the matter is referred to the Lok Adalat, then it will be a violation of the Supreme Court's order."

During the arguments, senior advocate S V Raju, appearing for LTL, argued that chances of arriving at a settlement was there as the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has not said that they do not want to settle the issue. "DoT is saying they are not a party to the case. DoT is not saying they do not want to settle or compound...Chances of settlement are there as DoT has said that they will abide by what the court will decide," he said.
