SC rejects Swamy's plea against Chidambaram

New Delhi, Sep 24 (IANS) The Supreme Court has dismissed a plea by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking the prosecution of Finance Minister P. Chidambaram along with former telecom minister A. Raja in the 2G case.

Dismissing the curative petition, the apex court bench of Chief Justice P. Sathasivam, Justice G.S. Singhvi, Justice R.M. Lodha and Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan said: "No case is made out...."

The judges took up the matter in their chamber. The curative petition was dismissed Sep 19, but the order was made available Tuesday.

Swamy filed the petition alleging fundamental errors in Dec 24, 2012 court judgment which dismissed his plea seeking to make Chidambaram a co-accused in the case.

The court had then said that no materials were made available even for "a prima facie conclusion" that Chidambaram had "abused his official position, or used any corrupt or illegal means for obtaining any pecuniary advantage for himself or any other persons, including Raja".
