NEW DELHI:  The Supreme Court on Monday said the Sun TV Network plea seeking a stay on the attachment of its assets worth Rs 742 crore by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) would be taken up by the special bench hearing the 2G spectrum scam.

“Please instruct your (ED) officer not to precipitate the matter,” a Bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu told senior advocate Anand Grover, who is the court-appointed Special Public Prosecutor for the Enforcement Directorate and CBI in the 2G cases.

The Bench said the special 2G Bench would hear the matter on July 23.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Sun TV, submitted that the Enforcement Directorate be restrained from proceeding with the matter.

The Bench said it was only a provisional attachment and noted that the company would have to respond to the ED notice by July 21. Government has maintained that the matter pertains to 2G case.

The Madras High Court had refused to consider Sun TV’s case on the same ground while Sun TV maintained that the properties attached by the ED were not connected with the alleged offence and were purchased before the offence was committed.
