The special Central Bureau of Investigation court has adjourned the hearing in the 2G spectrum scam till October 25, IANS reported.
CBI Special Judge OP Saini on Wednesday observed that documents filed in the case were voluminous and technical in nature, and it might take substantial time to go through them. The court will announce the date of the verdict on next hearing. The court had concluded final arguments in the case on April 26.
The court was hearing two separate cases related to 2G spectrum cases. The CBI is probing one of the cases and the Enforcement Directorate is investigating the other one.
The CBI has alleged that former Telecom Minister A Raja, during the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance’s rule, had caused a huge loss to the exchequer as he had undercharged telecom firms for frequency allocation licences. The Comptroller and Auditor General of India had estimated the total loss to the exchequer from the scam to be around Rs 1.76 trillion.
Apart from Raja, Rajya Sabha member and Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam leader Kanimozhi, former telecom secretary Sidharth Behura, Raja’s private secretary RK Chandolia are also accused in the case.
All the accused are out on bail.
