The accused have petitioned the court that the TRAI stated there was no loss to the exchequer on the 2G allocation, and that while the CAG assessed a “presumptive loss”, the CBI had no expertise to determine the loss, if any
New Delhi: A Delhi court today sought the stand of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on a plea by all the 17 accused so far in the 2G spectrum case, including former telecom minister A Raja and DMK member of parliament Kanimozhi, to make the TRAI report a part of the court's records.
The accused, including three telecom firms and their promoters, proprietors and top executives, moved the court of Special CBI Judge OP Saini seeking a direction to the investigating agency to file the TRAI report, which has stated that there was no loss to the exchequer in allocation of 2G spectrum.
The report had also recommended against the auctioning of radio waves and revision of entry fee for telecom firms, PTI reports.
The Comptroller and Auditor General had assessed a "presumptive loss" of Rs1.76 lakh crore to the state exchequer, whereas the CBI in its probe pegged the loss at Rs309,884 crore.
The special judge issued notice to the CBI on the plea and scheduled the arguments for Friday.
Senior counsel Ramesh Gupta, who appeared for Mr Raja, sought the court's direction to the CBI to bring the latest TRAI report on court record. So did Vijay Aggarwal, counsel for Swan telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa, who told the court, "The CBI has no scientific or technical expertise to determine the loss. In fact, CBI has itself made an admission in the chargesheet that the TRAI report is awaited for calculating the quantum of loss."
