NEW DELHI: The AAP today questioned the CBI's investigation in the 2G spectrum case after a special court acquitted all the accused, asking whether the probe agency "messed up" the case "intentionally".
AAP leaders alleged that the CBI did not submit any evidence before the court because of which former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi were cleared of the charges.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted:
2G scam is one of the biggest scams. It rocked the country n was one of the reasons for UPA’s downfall. Today everyone goes scot free. Did CBI mess up the case? Intentionally? People need answers— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 21, 2017
Party leader Ashutosh alleged that the CBI works directly under the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and it was under its direction the agency saved the accused.
Jaitley ji is giving Gyan on TV but not responding why CBI working like a parrot under Modi govt could not get evidences to nail accused ? Jaitley ji tell to the world what DEAL has been done ??— ashutosh (@ashutosh83B) December 21, 2017
He also sought an explanation from the BJP government on the probe agency's alleged failure to collect evidence.
"2G scam acquittal has shaken the very foundation of our justice system. Modi govt owes an explanation why CBI could not collect prosecutable evidences? Has Modi govt colluded with accused? BJP should tell to the nations about the DEAL? "If all of them proven innocent in 2G scam by CBI court then who did GHOTALA? Who are culprits? (sic)," he said.
A special CBI court today acquitted all those accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam cases.
