Hearing on 2G scam by Delhi Court to take place on 5 Oct

Hearing regarding the 2G Scam will now be done in the High court of capital. The Delhi High Court on Tuesday permitted the CBI and ED arguments seeking early hearing on the appeals challenging the acquittal of former telecom minister A Raja and others in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case. Justice Brijesh Sethi said the matter will be heard on a day-to-day basis from October 5 at 2:30 PM. This decision comes after Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Sanjay Jain asserted that Justice Brijesh Sethi was initiated to retreat on November 30 and shifting the case to another judge would mean starting the arguments afresh.

The ASG stated that substantial time had been consumed in the hearing and the effort will be wasted if the case is not concluded soon. The probe agencies have sought an early hearing of their leave to appeal', listed for October 12. Leave to appeal is formal permission granted by a court to a party to challenge a decision in a higher court. The timing of the hearing has however come under investigation as Tamil Nadu is set to face assembly elections in 2021. DMK and their associates have claimed that the move could be a ploy by the Union Government to destroy the party's image.
