SC: Sunil Mittal, Ravi Ruia not to face trial in 2G case

New Delhi, Jan 9 (IBNS): The Supreme Court on Friday said that Bharti Cellular Ltd chairman and managing director Sunil Bharti Mittal and Essar Group promoter Ravi Ruia will not face trial in a case of allocation of additional spectrum.

The Apex court quashed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special court’s order making the two top telecom executives accused in the case.

The duo had been summoned as accused by a special CBI court that heard the case involving the allocation of additional second 2G spectrum in 2002. Their names had not figured in the CBI chargesheet.

Both Mittal and Ruia had approached the top court challenging the order. The SC on Froday said that CBI court wrongly applied the legal principle while summoning the duo as accused.

The court, however, said that the CBI judge is at liberty to summon them at any stage if material on record is found.
