Spectrum case: Court to hear bail plea on Feb 3

A special court on Wednesday said that it would hear on February 3 the arguments on bail plea of former Telecom Secretary Shyamal Ghosh, who was chargesheeted by CBI in the additional spectrum allocation scam case of 2002 along with three telecom firms.

The case came up for hearing before Special CBI Judge O P Saini and the agency supplied the copies of the charge sheet and documents filed along with it to the accused.

CBI’s prosecutor K K Goel told the court that the agency would file a reply on the bail plea of Ghosh. “Put up for scrutiny (of documents) and reply, if any, and disposal of bail application on February 3,” the judge said. 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.

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