Top court refuses to review verdict barring HC from hearing 2G case

The Supreme Court has refused to review its verdict by which it had barred the Delhi high court from hearing the matters arising out of the 2G spectrum scam and for framing guidelines in a court-monitored probe.

‘We have gone through the review petitions and the connected papers. We see no reason to interfere with the order impugned. The review petitions are, accordingly, dismissed,’ a bench of justices HL Dattu and KS Radhakrishnan said.

The petitions, seeking review of the apex court verdict of 3 September last year were filed by Swan Telecom promoters Shahid Usman Balwa and Vinod Goenka, Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd directors Rajiv Agarwal and Essar Teleholdings Ltd.

The apex court had in its last year’s verdict rejected the pleas for recalling its two orders barring the high court from hearing the matters arising out of the 2G scam.

It had said the purpose and object of passing those orders was for a larger public interest and for speedy trial.
