New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday termed as
"flabbergasting" the amount of money transaction in 2G scam.

The scam, which, according to CAG estimates runs into Rs
1.76 lakh crore, left a bench of justices G S Singhvi and A
K Ganguly astonished as they perused the report of Enforcement
Directorate giving details of illegal transaction of thousands
of crore by the errant telcos.

"We are not familiar with such figures," the bench said
adding that investigating officers who are probing the case
must also be surprised with the amount involved in the scam.

"Gradually, figures are getting multiplied. Officers
must also be flabbergasted by these figures," the bench said
after going through the report.

The bench said "ultimately retrospection has to be done
by people themselves".
