CBI Special Judge O.P. Saini cites complex records.

A special court on Monday postponed a decision on fixing a date for the pronouncement of the verdict in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

“On account of voluminous, complex and technical record of the case, running into several lakhs of pages, files are still under perusal and may still take substantial time and some clarifications arising out of the perusal of record may also be required. Accordingly, put up the matter for further proceedings on 05.12.2017,” Special Judge O.P. Saini said in his brief order.

The court had on October 24 fixed November 7 as the date for fixing a date for the judgement. Former Telecom Minister A. Raja, DMK Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi and others face prosecution in the case.

 

The court also issued fresh warrants against Unitech Managing Director Sanjay Chandra and Bollywood producer Karim Morani for the next hearing.

Two cases connected with the spectrum scam are pending before the court for adjudication. One was lodged by the Central Bureau of Investigation under the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act and the other was filed by the ED under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
