  • CBI moves Delhi HC against acquittal of A Raja Kanimozhi in 2G spectrum case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) moved the Delhi High Court on Monday, challenging a city court order acquitting former telecom minister A Raja, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MP Kanimozhi and others in a money laundering case arising out of the 2G scam. According to report, nearly all the accused in the 2G scam were present in the court today.

The matter was mentioned in-chamber before Delhi HC acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal directed that it be listed before an appropriate bench.

The ED submitted that the 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.

Seems like the Special CBI judge OP Saini was well aware of what the future beholds as post granting the accused officials a clean chit, he imposed a bail bond of Rs 5 lakh on each to ensure their presence in a higher appellate court if the verdict is challenged in future.

On examination, it has been found that there are strong grounds against the acquittals for an appeal.

Special CBI court had acquitted all key accused, including Kanimozi.

In December a year ago, A Raja, Kanimozhi and all other accused were acquitted in 2G spectrum allocation alleged scam cases by a special court in Delhi, which held that the prosecution "miserably failed" to prove the charges. The court also failed on the point in which the crime is defined under Section 2 (1)(u), which considers only the criminal activity instead of commission of an offence, the ED said, adding the acquittal by the court in PMLA prosecution by interpreting the term criminal activity to the extent of commission of an offence appeared to be "erroneous".

Among the others accused were Raja's ex-private secretary R.K. Chandolia, Reliance Group managing director Gautam Doshi, its senior vice-president Hari Nair, president Surendra Pipara, Swan Telecom Pvt.

The ED, in its charge sheet, had alleged that Swan Telecom (P) Ltd (STPL) promoters paid Rs 200 crore to the DMK-run channel Kalaignar TV.
