Delhi HC to hear appeal on 2G spectrum case tomorrow

2G scam ED in HC against acquittal of Raja Kanimozhi

Rajeev Awasthi, Advocate representing ED in 2G Spectrum case, says, " Court while issuing notice on interim application granted status quo order with regard to attached property, this means the property remains with ED".

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court against the acquittal of former Telecom Minister A Raja, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader Kanimozhi and several others in the 2G spectrum allocation case, PTI reported.

The Enforcement Directorate filed a similar plea in the Delhi High Court on Monday.

The ED had similar contention that the Special CBI Court, while acquitting all 10 individuals and nine entities from the money-laundering charges, did not properly appreciate the facts and evidence in the case.

English physicist Sir Isaac Newton, who formulated the law of universal gravitation, was buried in the same place in 1727. The professor's family said he was an "integral and highly recognisable part of the university and the city".

"I have absolutely no hesitation in holding that the prosecution has miserably failed to prove any charge against any of the accused, made in its well choreographed chargesheet", Special Judge O P Saini had said. CBI had filed an FIR against "unknown officers" of the telecom department and unknown private persons/companies under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Prevention of Corruption Act in October 2009 and a Special CBI court was set up to hear the case in March 2011. Besides Raja and Kanimozhi, other accused acquitted in the case include DMK supremo M Karunanidhi's wife Dayalu Ammal, Shahid Balwa and Vinod Goenka of Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd., Asif Balwa and Rajiv Aggarwal of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt.

Both Enforcement Directorate and CBI had moved the Delhi High Court this week challenging the special court verdict acquitting the former telecom minister and others in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case.

The CAG, then headed Vinod Rai, alleged that 122 2G licences were given to telecom operators at throwaway prices when the UPA was in power and pegged the loss to the national exchequer at Rs 1.76 lakh crore.

The first case, prosecuted by the CBI, had 17 accused, while the second matter, pursued by the ED, had 19 accused.
