Hearing the plea of Sanjay Chardra an accused in 2G spectrum allocation case on quashing the charges framed against him the Delhi High Court on Monday issued notice to CBI for its response.
Chandra, MD of Unitech Limited, in his plea filed in High Court had called the charges against him by the CBI in 2G as being framed in casual manner saying that order was passed without applying judicial mind.
He said that the charges against him lacked the evidence to prove the conspiracy theory of colluding with a public servant for wrongful finacila gains. In his petition he denied that his company ever paid bribe to procure Unified Access Services Licences (UASL).
“There was no evidence to show that the petitioner (Chandra) had in any manner conspired with any public servant to cause wrongful gain to himself or wrongful loss to the government of India,” he had submitted.
Chandra said that despite this admission of the respondent (CBI), the trial court wrongly linked the bribery allegation and the Unitech Wireless Companies in its order on charge.
“In the light of this categorical admission by the respondent (CBI), the petitioners case is no different from that of any of the non-prosecuted persons/companies who were granted LOIs in January 2008 or licences up to March 2007 and subsequently issued licences, or which were granted licences up to March 2007 at the entry fee determined in 2001,” Mr. Chandra had said.
