2G scam verdict: Court acquits Essar Group promoters in related cases

A special court on Thursday acquitted Group promoters and Anshuman Ruia and others in a case arising out of the 2G scam probe.

Besides them, Special CBI Judge O P Saini also acquitted Promoters and Kiran Khaitan in the case.

The others acquitted are Vikash Saraf, one of the Group Directors, Ltd, Loop Mobile (India) Ltd and Teleholdings Ltd.

While the court had earlier charged them with the offence under section 120 B (criminal conspiracy) read with section 420 (cheating) of IPC, substantial charge of cheating was made out against Saraf.

The CBI had named them in its charge sheet on December 12, 2011, alleging they had cheated the Department of Telecommunication by using as a "front" to secure 2G licences in 2008.
