Former Telecom Minister A.Raja today questioned his prosecution in the 2G spectrum scam by telling a Delhi court that entire proceedings were 'vitiated' as the probe relating to him was incomplete.
"As on today, this trial is vitiated because while the trial is commencing, investigation is pending in the same RC (CBI FIR)," he contended before Special CBI judge O.P. Saini while accusing CBI of being 'dishonest' in its probe.
He alleged CBI was unfair to him as he was quizzed on July 18 in connection with the allotment of licence to Loop Telecom, alleged to be the front company of Essar Group, despite the agency informing the court on July 14 that investigations against him with regard to the two chargesheets was complete.
"Why is CBI not completing the investigation? How can you (the court) send me (Raja) to be interrogated on July 18 after you (the court) in your order dated July 14 had said that probe on Raja is complete?," senior advocate Sushil Kuakr said.
Questioning the court's order permitting CBI to quiz Raja on July 18, he said, 'how can CBI be allowed to question him (Raja) regarding Loop Telecom (one of the companies allotted 2G licences)"?
He accused CBI of giving 'misleading statement' and said the trial should be fair.
"CBI is dishonest with the court. They took my (Raja's) custody for (questioning) Loop Telecom after making a statement before the court that the probe with respect to me is completed," he said.
PM, FM knew about 2G transactions
Well, as they say, "Offence is the Best form of Defence", which Raja is implementing;

And insinuating the others knowing his murky transaction doesn't make his crime any less!

If others are involved, they too would be prosecuted but it doesn't mean Raja would be let off lightly!!
