New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday allowed Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy to conduct his private complaint in the 2G scam.

The court also gave him time for filing an application which seeks to make then Finance Minister P Chidambaram an accused in the case as the matter is pending in the Supreme Court.

"Since my application seeking CBI inquiry into the role of Chidambaram in 2G scam is pending before the Supreme Court, it would be in the interest of justice to wait for the Apex Court's order and then come here (to this court) with the plea to make him (Chidambaram) an accused in the case," Swamy told Special CBI Judge O P Saini.

The Janata Party chief informed the Judge that the Apex Court order on his petition is likely to be delivered on September 1 and then he would file by September 15 the application seeking to make Chidambaram an accused in the case.

The court fixed the matter for further hearing on September 15.

Swamy, during the last hearing, had complained before the court that the chargesheets field by the CBI did not cover the role of the Chidambaram, who "jointly took important decisions" on allocation of radio waves.

He had also urged the court that he be appointed Special Public Prosecutor to conduct his case himself.

SC seeks CBI’s stand on Reliance officials

In yet another significant development in the 2Gspectrum case the Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the CBI on the bail pleas of three top executives of Reliance ADAG firm, arrested for their alleged involvement in the scam.

Agreeing to hear their pleas, a bench headed by Justice G S Singhvi asked the investigating agency to file its reply on the bail pleas of ADAG Group MD Gautam Doshi, President Surendra Pipara and Senior Vice President Hari Nair.

The trio have challenged the rejection of their bail pleas by the Delhi High Court which, on May 23, had said, "The gravity of the offence itself is sufficient to deny bail".

They are in jail since April 20. Their bail applications came up for hearing a day  after all the 17 accused completed their arguments opposing the framing of charges against them in a special court exclusively set up to hold their trial in the 2G case.

The CBI had in its first charge sheet filed on April 2 specified the role of Reliance Telecom Ltd (RTL) and its three top officials for their "complicity" in the 2G spectrum scam.

Doshi, Pipara and Nair, along with the company, have been charge sheeted for entering into a criminal conspiracy to cheat the government by getting licences in an illegal manner.

The agency had alleged that RTL used Swan Telecom, a firm ineligible for getting the licence, as its front company to get it".

"Swan, at the time of application, was an associate of RTL. Investigations have also disclosed that Tiger Trader Pvt Ltd, which held maturity stake in Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd, was also an associate company of Reliance ADA Group.

"Both the companies had no business history and were activated solely for the purpose of applying for UAS licences in 13 telecom circles," the first charge sheet in the case had said.

"Investigation has revealed that in Jan-Feb 2007 accused Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair had, in furtherance of their common intention to cheat DoT, structured created net worth of company Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd out of funds arranged from Reliance Telecom Ltd," the agency said.
