2G Spectrum Case Highlights: What I Did Was Correct, Says A Raja

2G Spectrum Case: A Raja was arrested in 2011 and spent almost a year in jail.

New Delhi:  After a seven-year-long trial, the verdict in 2G case on Thursday came as a surprise as all 17 accused including former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK leader Kanimozhi were acquitted over lack of evidence. 

The trial court said yesterday that "a huge scam was seen by everyone where there was none." The judge said in a packed courtroom, " I have absolutely no hesitation in holding that prosecution has miserably failed to prove any charge against any of the accused, made in its well-choreographed charge-sheet."

Following the verdict, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh claimed the scam was an attempt to tarnish the Congress' image. The national auditor had earlier claimed the "2G scam" may have cost the exchequer Rs 1.76 lakh crore.
 

Here are the highlights on the 2G Spectrum case.
