NEWDELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday left it to the trial court to decide on the demand for investigation of the alleged role of Home Minister P Chidambaram in the 2G spectrum case.

Disposing of Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy’s  petition seeking a direction to the CBI to probe the alleged role of Chidambaram, who held the finance portfolio at the time of the second generation spectrum allocation, the two-judge Bench said its order should in no way influence the proceedings before the trial court. Swamy had contended that Chidambaram, as the Finance Minister, had a role in fixation of prices of the licences and in the dilution of shares by the telecom firm to two foreign companies.  The SC has directed the trial court to take the final decision on whether to probe Chidambaram within next two weeks.
