Supreme Court ruling on 2G case today

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will on Thursday pronounce its judgements on the petitions seeking a direction for a probe into the alleged role of home minister P Chidambaram in 2G spectrum scam and for cancellation of 122 radiowave licences granted during the tenure of A Raja as telecom minister. The judgements will be pronounced by a bench comprising Justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly which had reserved its verdict on the plea for probe against Chidambaram and for cancellation of licences of spectrum on October 10 and March 17 respectively last year. The unanimous verdicts on both the petitions would be pronounced by Justice Singhvi.

The petitions on both the issues were filed by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation and Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy. Since Justice Ganguly is retiring tomorrow, he will be sitting in a bench headed by Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia. The role of Chidambaram in the 2G scam was raised in the Supreme Court by the petitioners who had pointed out that there was evidence on record showing that the decision regarding pricing of spectrum was taken jointly by him and Raja.
