People shocked after special court acquits all the accused in the 2G scam case

Many felt that 21st December 2017 would be a historic day when India via the verdict in the 2G scam case, strikes a decisive blow on the corrupt establishment which has plagued it for many a years.

As per the CBI prosecution, the irregularities in spectrum allocation resulted in a loss of about Rs 30,000 to the national exchequer. In the total three cases (2 filed by CBI and one by ED), the prominent accused included former telecom minister A Raja and Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi.

It has been alleged that A Raja was the main man behind advancing this deadline.
