SC sets deadline for probe into 2 G spectrum scam

New Delhi : The Supreme Court Justices Arun Misra and Naveen Sinha on Monday directed investigating agencies, the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate to complete their probe into the 2G spectrum allocation cases and other related matters in six months.

Further the court directed the centre to file a status report on investigation into the 2G spectrum scam and related cases arising out of it, including the Aircel-Maxis deal, in two weeks.

The bench was of the view that investigation has been on for an unduly long time and people can not be kept in a dark in sensitive matter like this.

The apex court also relieved senior advocate Anand Grover, who was appointed by it in 2014 as Special Public Prosecutor in the 2G spectrum case and upheld the Centre's decision to appoint Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehat in place of Grover as the SPP in the 2G Spectrum case .Besides the court also dismissed a contempt petition filed by an NGO which has been pursuing the developments related to the scam in the apex court.
