2G spectrum verdict: how the case collapsed

CBI court on Thursday acquitted all the accused, including former telecom minister A. Raja and DMK Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi, of corruption and money laundering charges in the 2G spectrum allocation cases.It was unexpected that court sets all accused free
Here are some reasons why the case collapsed:

  1. ┬áThe CBI couldn’t prove that Raja, along with telecom ministry Officials manipulated the cut-off date for bids in the first-come, first-served policy for allocation of 2G spectrum.
  2.  The CBI failed to establish that Raja had prior familiarity with two of the accused, DB group promoter Shahid Balwa and Managing Director of Unitech Ltd Sanjay Chandra.
  3. Documentary evidence and witness testimony couldn’t prove that the accused ignored the ineligibility Swan Telecom and Unitech group companies, which were alleged beneficiaries
  4. The CBI couldn’t link Raja to the money transfer of Rs 200cr to Kalaignar TV by Dynamix Balwas group, which was critical to establish if it was ‘illegal gratification’ or bribe in exchange for telecom licenses.
  5. There were lapses in the CBI’s probe and “deteriorating” prosecution in the latter stage of the trial, after the appointment of Anand Grover as special prosecutor by the Supreme Court.
