New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday referred that a special court should be set up for hearing the plea of Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy in the 2G scam and decide whether he should be made a prosecutor in the case.

"The Supreme Court had directed setting up of an exclusive court to deal with cases arising out of the 2G scam. District and Sessions Judge-1 is requested to kindly entrust this file (Swamy's case) to the court so constituted," Special CBI Judge Pradeep Chaddah said.

The court, while marking the file to the District Judge, asked Swamy to appear before the district court on March 25.

Swamy's lawyer Tarun Goomber sought exemption for his client from personal appearance as Swamy had to appear before the Supreme Court in the 2G case. The court allowed Swamy's plea.

The Delhi High Court had earlier decided to set up a special court exclusively to hold the trial in the 2G scam for expeditious hearing in the case.

Swamy had also sought the court's direction to appoint him as a public prosecutor to help the agency probe the case.

The agency had told the court that it had been probing the 2G scam within the confines of the first information report registered by it.

Swamy had earlier sought the court's direction to the CBI to ask the Union Home Ministry, Research and Analysis Wing and other intelligence agencies to find out the bearings of 2G scam on national security.
