The Supreme Court Friday issued notice to the CBI on a plea by Sunil Mittal of Bharti Airtel and Ravikant Ruia of Essar challenging their being summoned before a special court hearing the case relating to the allocation of 2G spectrum in 2002.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir, while issuing the notice, asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file its response in four weeks and gave another three weeks to Mital and Ruia to file their rejoinder.

The court said the proceedings before the trial court in this matter would remain deferred till then.

The 2G special court headed by Additional Session Judge O.P. Saini had summoned Mittal and Ruia, along with five others, in connection with the allocation of spectrum during the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime in 2002.
