Patiala House Court (New Delhi), Feb 04 (CMC) Giving clean chit to the Home Minister P Chidambaram today the Special judge O P Saini has dismissed Janta Party President Subramaian Swamy's plea to make Home Minister P Chidambaram co-accused in the 2G scam.
On the key judgement day, the Patiala House trial court today was to announce verdict on Home Minister P Chidambaram on charges of being a co-accused in the 2G licence allocation helping then Telecom minister A Raja to give away licences at drop away prices.
The verdict was delivered on camera.
Hundreds including media persons had gathered outside the court in anticipation of the verdict against the Home Minister.
At 10 am, Special CBI Judge allowed only Swamy to enter inside the court room and conveyed to him to come before 12:30 pm.
"I have been asked to be present in the court before 12:30 pm. I can say that I am confident that the judgement will be delivered today," Swamy told reporters coming out of the court.
Court staff also said that the judge would deliver the verdict around 12:30 pm, but the judgment was announced only around 1:40 pm.
Swamy had moved the court seeking to make Chidambaram as co-accused in the 2G spectrum scam alleging he was as culpable as former Telecom minister A Raja in determining the prices of scarce spectrum and in allowing the dilution of shares.
Swamy said that Chidambaram had allowed Raja to 'gift away' the licences.
