Karunanidhi involved in 2G scam: Swamy tells court
Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy today strongly pleaded for continuance of his private complaint in the 2G spectrum case before a Delhi court, which asked him whether there can be "parallel proceedings" in a criminal case when CBI was taking action in the matter.
Swamy sought to claim that that his complaint covers wider canvas of "involvement" of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Karunanidhi in the scam and national security.
He was responding to a pointed query of Special Judge Pradeep Chaddah as how parallel proceedings can continue on the same issue when media reports suggested that CBI was probing the case and has also arrested former Telecom Minister A Raja and two top officials in the case.
"As per section 210 of the CrPC, when it appears to the magistrate that the police (CBI) investigation is in progress in relation to some matter, the complaint case, which is pending before him, then he must stop the proceedings and call for reports," the court said while asking the agency to file a detailed report on February 22.
Earlier, Swamy said "the scope of the private complaint was much wider than what is being investigated upon by the CBI and as per my knowledge, the complaint also involves concerns of national security and involvement of Karunanidhi."
The Janata Party leader said that he was intending to file an application seeking impleading of the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister as an accused in the case as there was sufficient evidence to that effect.
