The accused, including former Telecom Minister A.

The advocates for the accused raised objections to the CBI’s move and the proceedings in the 2G case witnessed for the first time, trading of charges between the accused and prosecutors.
The agency, the accused said, has not only “concealed the documents” and “wilfully abstained” from filing them with their charge sheets but “they (CBI) are not prepared to go for the trial because they have not completed their investigation”.
“Even in the Supreme Court, they have said that they are going to file another charge sheet. How do I know if it has anything against these 17 accused,” advocate Vijay Agarwal, appearing for Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Blawa, submitted before Special CBI judge O.P. Saini.
