New Delhi: In a relief to Bharti Cellular Ltd CMD Sunil Bharti Mittal and Essar Group promoter Ravi Ruia, the Supreme Court on Friday set aside the order of the special court summoning them as accused in a corruption case related to allocation of additional spectrum during NDA rule in 2002.

“The legal principle has been wrongly applied. We set aside the order of the special court," a bench comprising chief justice H.L. Dattu and justices Madan B Lokur and A.K. Sikri said.

The bench said, “We are giving liberty to the special judge that if at any stage any material is found, he has every right to summon them (as accused)."

The apex court had on 4 December last year, reserved the verdict after hearing counsel for corporate honchos and the CBI.
