2G: Raja`s aide, Balwa denied bail by Delhi court

A Delhi court on Friday rejected the bail pleas of former telecom minister A Raja`s personal secretary R K Chandolia and Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa arrested in the 2G spectrum case.



New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday rejected
the bail pleas of former telecom minister A Raja`s personal
secretary R K Chandolia and Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman
Balwa arrested in the 2G spectrum case, saying they can tamper
with evidence and influence witnesses if let out.
The court said while one of the accused was a public
official, the other was a businessman having potential to
influence the witnesses.

"There is no doubt that R K Chandolia is a high
ranking public servant and accused Balwa is also an
influential businessman.

"Accordingly, I find a merit in the submission of
Special Public Prosecutor for CBI that if these accused are
released on bail, they may tamper with evidence or witnesses
may not come forward to give statements, more so when no one
came forward to complain against their illegal acts," Special
CBI Judge O P Saini said.
Chandolia was arrested along with Raja by the CBI on
February 2 while Balwa was taken into custody on February 8.
