NEW DELHI: A Delhi court will continue its hearing on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramaniam Swamy's plea seeking prosecution of Tata Sons interim Chairman Ratan Tata, lobbyist Niira Radia and others in 2G spectrum allocation scam.

The BJP MP earlier in December last year filed a complaint against Tata, Radia, former Telecom Minister A. Raja and senior Unitech officials for allegedly laundering money to Unitech companies to obtain
2G spectrum licence.

Swamy, who filed the complaint in the Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Court, also named unidentified CBI officials for protecting Tata in the 2G spectrum case.

Swamy alleged that various Tata Group companies were used to route the money to the various companies of Unitech Group and finally managed to a launder a sum of Rs. 1,700 crore for their illegal
purpose during the period of March 2007 to March 2008.

Swamy said that the movement was facilitated by eight companies of Unitech Wireless.

Swamy submitted various documents, including from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs’ serious fraud investigation office (SFIO).

He has requested court to initiate proceedings against the accused under various charges dealing with cheating, fraud, forgery, criminal conspiracy and under the provisions of the Prevention of Money
Laundering Act.

Swamy has also requested court to direct the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to conduct further investigation to unearth the deep-rooted conspiracy.
