The special CBI court hearing the 2G spectrum case on Tuesday adjourned the matter and will now fix the date of verdict on December 5.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had on October 25, deferred the matter to November 7 observing that documents in the case were voluminous and technical in nature which might take substantial time for clarification.

Two cases have been filed by the CBI and another one by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).


On April 26, the court had concluded final arguments in the case.

According to the CBI, Raja was biased in allocating 2G mobile air waves and operating licences to telecom firms, causing a huge loss to the state exchequer.

The CBI chargesheet said Rs.200 crore was transferred from DB Group to Kalaignar TV, which were kickbacks in lieu of allocation of 2G spectrum to Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd.

The Enforcement Directorate has filed a separate case related to money laundering alleging that a conspiracy was hatched by Raja, Kanimozhi and DMK supremo M. Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal besides others and that the Rs.200 crore was the proceeds of crime.

All accused, including Raja, are out on bail.
