The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed the listing of Reliance Telecommunications’ plea challenging the 2G special trial court order summoning a number of people, including Reliance Group chairman Anil Ambani, as prosecution witnesses before the bench.

As senior counsel Mukul Rohtagi got up to address the court on the plea, an apex court bench headed by Justice G.S. Singhvi said: “Go to the bench which is hearing the matter.”

Having said so, the court ordered: “Let the matter be listed before the bench seized of the 2G matter”.

The special court had asked Mr. Ambani and his wife Tina Ambani to appear before it after the CBI made them witness in the 2G spectrum allocation case.
