NEW DELHI: DMK MP Kanimozhi on Thursday sought dismissal of a CBI plea, seeking special court’s permission to summon some additional witnesses, including Enforcement Directorate (ED) Deputy Director Rajeshwar Singh, in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

In her reply filed before Special CBI Judge O P Saini, Kanimozhi said the CBI has filed the application at a highly belated stage and pointed out that the recording of evidence had already been closed.

Kanimozhi and others, including former Telecom Minister A Raja and several top corporate executives, are facing trial in the 2G case for their alleged involvement.

The court asked the defence advocates to file their replies, if any, by October 14 and fixed the matter for arguments on October 27.

The CBI had moved the application seeking the court’s permission to summon Rajeshwar, ED’s Assistant Director Satyendra Singh, Under Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Navil Kapur and bank official D Mani.

The investigating agency has also sought to recall General Manager (Finance) of Kalaignar TV (P) Ltd G Rajendran, who had earlier deposed as a witness in the case, for further examination. In its plea, the CBI has said these persons were required to be examined as witnesses as some new facts have emerged in the probe conducted by the ED, which had recently filed a separate chargesheet against 19 accused in a 2G scam-related money laundering case.
