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.
