New Delhi, Mar 16 (ANI): The Supreme Court will on Friday take up the petition of Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy, who is seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram in connection with the 2G spectrum scam.
Swamy had filed a petition in the apex court last month, and challenged a Delhi trial court's dismissal of his plea to make Chidambaram a co-accused along with former Telecom Minister A. Raja in the 2G scam.
Swamy has so far alleged that Chidambaram was equally culpable like former telecom minister A Raja, as he also had a role in deciding the spectrum pricing and allowing telecom companies to off-load shares to foreign firms.
The telecom scam, one of India's biggest graft cases ever, may have cost 39.57 billion dollars in expected revenue losses to the public exchequer as per the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India's report. (ANI)
