New Delhi: With a Special CBI court on Saturday framing charges against former Telecom Minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanomozhi and 15 others in the multi-crore 2-G spectrum scam, Law Minister Salman Khurshid on Saturday said this will pave the way for the hearing of their bail applications.

Khurshid, however, refrained from commenting on the merits of the case, saying "the matter is sub-judice".

"Now that charges have been framed, it should be possible for the court to hear the bail applications of the accused in the case. What happens in course obviously time will tell," Khurshid told reporters on the sidelines of the meeting of the National Development Council.

He, however, added that "since the Supreme Court had indicated in its order that once the charges are framed, thereafter bail applications pending before the trial court can be considered. Trial court had indicated 24th as the date. Now that charges have been framed, it should now be possible for the court to hear the bail applications."

"The bail applications will be now taken up. The court will take a decision on this soon... What happens in course, obviously, time will tell," he said.
