The Delhi High Court on Tuesday transferred all cases related to 2G spectrum scam and Aircel-Maxis scam from the court of judge O.P. Saini to the court of special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar at the Rouse Avenue Courts Complex in New Delhi. P Chidambaram, who is currently in jail in the INX-Media case, is named in these cases also, where he had received bail several times. The cases will move to Ajay Kuhar’s court from October 1, as Judge OP Saini is scheduled to retire by the end of this month.

“Chief Justice and Judges of this Court (high court) have been pleased to order that cases pertaining to 2G Spectrum scam pending in the Court of Mr O P Saini, District and Sessions Judge-cum-Special Judge (PC Act)(CBl), Rouse Avenue Courts Complex, New Delhi be transferred and allocated to the Court of Special Judge (PC Act) (CBI)-09, Rouse Avenue Courts Complex, New Delhi presently presided over by Mr A K Kuhar with effect from October, 1, 2019 which shall be the designated Court to undertake the trial of the said 2G Spectrum Cases in addition to matters already pending before the Court of Mr A K Kuhar,” the order issued by the Delhi High Court said.

The court of special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar is already hearing the INX-Media case against P Chidambaram. The court had sent the former union finance minister to CBI custody after his arrest, and after the maximum limit of police custody was over, he was sent to Tihar jail on judicial custody.

The Supreme Court had appointed Judge Saini to head all cases relayed to 2G scam on a day-to-day basis. In 2017, all the accused in the case were acquitted by the court of Judge Saini. The same court had also acquitted former union minister Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanithi in the Aircel Maxis case.

CBI and ED had moved the Delhi High Court against the acquittals in the 2G case in March 2018.
