Mumbai (Agencies): A Mumbai court has allowed two days transit custody of 2G scam accused Shahid Usman Balwa to Central Bureau of Investigation. He will be taken to Delhi and confront him with former Telecom Minister A Raja.

Balwa was arrested on Tuesday evening from his Bandra residence and was produced before Special CBI Judge SC Chandak who allowed the agency two days of transit remand for his production before a Delhi court.

Arguing in the court, Balwa's counsel contended that the company of his client was being singled out and was being made "scapegoat" despite some more firms being involved in the case.

Countering the argument, the CBI counsel said that Balwa sold the licence to Etisalat, a UAE based company, allegedly for Rs 4200 crores while he had got it for Rs 1537 crore.

After the hearing of both sides, the judge said that since the CBI has Raja in its custody, it may need to confront the former minister and Balwa as the accused may have divulged something during his interrogation.

Balwa's arrest came two days ahead of the Supreme Court hearing the ongoing 2G spectrum case.

According to sources, the CBI had some evidence through Income Tax department that Balwa, a known close aide of Raja, was instrumental in channelling alleged kickbacks received by the former telecom minister in the sale of 2G spectrum.
