A Special CBI court today gave its judgement in the famous 2G-spectrum allocation case acquitting all accused including Former Minister A Raja, Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi among others.

 

Pronouncing the judgement Justice OP Saini said that the CBI could not present any charge against any of the accused made in its well-choreographed chargesheet.

In its 1553 page judgement Justice OP Saini clearly states that there was no Scam and that several factors compelled people to conjecture about a big scam.

Full copy of judgement

Item number 1814 in the CBI vs A Raja and others judgement reads:

“The issues got snowballed when media reports started appearing. One of the first media reports was a news item dated 08.11.2007 in Economic Times captioned “Jarring Call: Grabbing precious spectrum for a song”, Ex PW 60/K¬143. This was also dealt with in file D-6 vide note dated 08.11.2007, Ex PW 36/E¬7, recorded by Sh. A. K. Srivastava. This news item highlighted that MOC&IT had not accepted the Recommendations of TRAI and DoT for auction of 2G spectrum and thus, a loss of Rs. 10,000 crore would be caused to the Exchequer. This news item was rightly denied by the DoT as factually incorrect. However, on account of the various actions and inactions of the officials, as noted above, nobody believed the version of DoT and a huge scam was seen by everyone where there was none. These factors compelled people to conjecture about a big scam. Thus, some people created a scam by artfully arranging a few selected facts and exaggerating things beyond recognition to astronomical levels.”
