2G scam case: Delhi HC denies early hearing on CBI’s appeal

  • The next date of hearing is on 24 October
  • A special CBI court had in Dec 2017 acquitted all the 17 accused in the case relating to irregularities in the allocation of 2G spectrum

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday refused to allow the application made by the Central Bureau Investigation (CBI) which sought an early date of hearing in its appeal against the acquittal of A Raja and others in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

The next date of hearing is on 24 October as previously scheduled.

Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain had sought an early hearing, saying a huge number of bilateral treaties were being invoked pursuant to the 2G verdict.

“If we lose on merit, we lose, but we should not lose on account of the matter not being heard," he had submitted.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had in December 2017 acquitted all the 17 accused in the case relating to irregularities in the allocation of 2G telecom spectrum and licences.

This had led to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filing an appeal against the acquittal of former telecom minister A Raja and others on 20 March 2018.
