BANGALORE, INDIA: The special 2G scam trial court has on Tuesday permitted India's federal investigation agency to file additional documents in the 2G spectrum case.


CBI had earlier sought the court's permission to present documents related to alleged communication between the department of  telecommunications (DoT) and telecom regulatory authority of India (TRAI).

Public prosecutor U.U. Lalit argued that the former telecom minister A. Raja has been in possession of three out of four copies of documents, which the agency sought to be placed before the court record.

''I do not see any reason for declining the CBI prayer for placing additional documents,'' said Lalit. The accused, however, objected to CBI's plea and said that it could have been placed earlier.

Special Judge O.P. Saini while granting permission said, "In view of the facts and circumstances of the case and the law applicable on the subject, the prayer is allowed and documents are allowed to be placed on record.''
