New Delhi, 23 July: The Supreme Court today said its special Bench looking into the 2G spectrum matter will hear the plea of Reliance Telecom Ltd (RTL) challenging a special court’s order making its boss, Mr Anil Ambani, and his wife, Mrs Tina Ambani, witnesses.
“It will go to the Bench hearing the matter,” Justices G S Singhvi and V Gopala Gowda said. The 2G spectrum matter is being heard by a Bench comprising Justice Singhvi and Justice K S Radhakrishnan. “I will enquire with Justice Radhakrishnan when the matter can be listed for hearing,” Justice Singhvi said.
Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for RTL, said there was a need for hearing the matter urgently as the trial court has already issued summons for calling fresh witnesses.
Hours after the apex court had yesterday allowed the matter to be listed for mentioning, the trial court had directed Reliance ADAG Chairman Anil Ambani to appear before it on July 26.
Contesting the Special CBI Court order summoning the Ambani couple to depose as CBI witnesses, RTL questioned the decision to call new witnesses at such a later stage of trial.                         pti
