Rahul Gandhi

The Delhi High Court on Friday has admitted CBI’s appeal challenging acquittal of former telecom minister A Raja, firms and others in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case.

Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma stated on the basis of the material on record and the submissions made by the lawyers for the parties, a prima facie case is made out by the CBI that requires deeper examination and the appeal needs to be heard in detail.

The judge stated, “Leave to appeal is granted. List the appeal for hearing in May.”

The high court passed the judgement on CBI’s “leave to appeal”, paving the way for dealing with the appeal on merits against the trial court’s verdict.

The appeal was filed by CBI in 2018.

“Leave to appeal” is a formal permission granted by a court to a party to challenge a decision in the higher court.

The judge reserved his decision on this aspect on March 14.

Previously on December 21, 2017, the special court acquitted Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and others in the CBI & ED cases related to the 2G scam.
