A Delhi court on Saturday fixed February 4 to pronounce its verdict on Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy’s plea to prosecute Union home minister P Chidambaram for his alleged role in the 2G scam case.
Special CBI judge OP Saini reserved the orders after conclusion of arguments by Swamy, who contended that evidence submitted by him to the court prima facie showed that Chidambaram was equally culpable as former telecom minister A Raja, already facing trial in the case.
“A Raja and P Chidambaram had committed the offence together. Prima facie Chidambaram had conspired and colluded with Raja to commit offence of criminal misconduct,” Swamy told the court.
As the then finance minister, Chidambaram, along with Raja, was empowered by October 2003 cabinet decision to discuss on and finalise spectrum prices, he contended.
