New Delhi: A Commonwealth Games (CWG) scam accused on Thursday sought bail from a court here on the ground of parity with the 2G spectrum scam case accused who were freed from jail on orders of the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court.
"Both the cases are related to allegations of financial
irregularities. Both the cases are also similar in their
alleged effect on society and causing loss to exchequer.
"These judgments (of the Supreme Court and the High
Court) are not applicable to 2G case only. They are now law,"
Lalit Bhanot, former Secretary General of CWG Organising
Committee and an accused in a CWG-related graft case, told
Special Judge Talwant Singh.
Advocate Ramesh Gupta, appearing for Bhanot, cited the
Supreme Court and the High Court judgements in the 2G case and
said the higher courts had considered the nature and gravity
of the case and then granted bail.
