New Delhi: Former Telecom Minister A Raja was on Saturday ordered to be put on trial in the 2G case by a Delhi court which said offence of criminal breach of trust, carrying life imprisonment as maximum sentence, is made out against him as he had the dominion over the costly spectrum.

Besides Raja, Special CBI Judge O P Saini framed charges for substantive offence of criminal breach of trust against former Telecom Secretary Siddhartha Behura saying they both were the political and administrative heads of the Department of Telecommunication (DoT).

The judge, however, said Raja's former private secretary R K Chandolia, against whom CBI had sought to invoke additional charge of criminal breach of trust, was only assisting the minister in discharge of his duties.
