Chidambaram not to be co-accused in 2G Case
The Delhi High court on February 4, 2012 gave a huge relief to the Home Minister P Chidambaram. The court dismissed a petition by the Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy to make Chidambaram the co-accused in the 2G spectrum case.
Special judge OP Saini on Swami’s petition said that the prayer to summon Chidambaram as an accused is dismissed. The court further said that it would commence hearing on the complaint filed by Swamy in which he has made further allegations against former Telecom Minister A Raja from March 17.
Swamy in the petition demanded that Chidambaram should be made an accused in the 2G case alleging that he was as culpable as Raja while determining the price of the spectrum. While reacting on the judgement, Swami said that he would approach the Delhi High Court with more evidence.
Swamy expressed that he was dissatisfied by the order but not disheartened. Advocate Tarun Gombhar, who was assisting Swamy said that the evidences produced to the court was enough to make a prima facie case against Chidambaram. On the other hand the Telecom minister Kapil Sibal said that there is no evidence against Chidambaram in the 2G case.
