SC no to CBI probe of Chidambaram in 2G
Disposing of the petitions filed by Subramainan Swamy seeking a direction to the CBI to probe the alleged role of Chidambaram, a bench comprising justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly said that its order should no way influence the proceedings before the trial court.
The apex court said that the trial court should decide the matter within two weeks.
Special CBI Judge O P Saini, who is hearing a separate petition of Swamy to prosecute Chidambaram, has already reserved his order for February 4.
Swamy had contended that Chidambaram as finance minister had a role in fixation of prices of the licenses and in the dilution of shares by the telecom firms to two foreign companies.
