Telecom firm Unitech Limited's Managing Director Sanjay Chandra on Saturday accused CBI in a Delhi court of "creating evidence" against him to support its claim that he had conspired with former telecom minister A Raja and others for allocation of the 2G spectrum to his firm.

Opposing the framing of corruption and conspiracy charges against him in 2G scam, Chandra told Special CBI Judge O P Saini that the agency had levelled vague allegations against him and created evidence after lodging the FIR against him.

"Normally, we see that the prosecution moves from crime to the criminal. But here (in this case), CBI has moved from criminal to the crime and has created step-by-step evidence (against him)," Chandra's counsel R S Cheema said.

He submitted CBI has recorded the statement of some of the star prosecution witnesses in the case several times.

"Here, in this case, we have clear evidence of belated statement (of prosecution witnesses) recorded and that too with improvements," he said, adding "there is creation of evidence (by the CBI)."

He also questioned why all other telecom companies, alleged to be the beneficiary of spectrum allotment, are not before the court.

"What is the rationale behind selecting some of us to face the music?," he said.
