New Delhi: The government on Saturday beefed the
CBI`s legal team to argue the 2G spectrum case in the Supreme
Court by inducting eminent lawyer K K Venugopal to represent
the investigating agency along with Additional Solicitor
General Haren Raval.

With the appointment of Venugopal, the strength of the
legal team has gone up to four.

The decision by the Law Ministry to requisition the
services of Venugopal, a private lawyer, ahead of the Supreme
Court hearing on Tuesday, is as an effort to strengthen its
legal team in the Supreme Court for the sensitive case,
sources said.

While Attorney General G E Vahanvati will represent the
Prime Minister, Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium will
represent the DoT.

Law Minister M Veerappa Moily had on Friday asked his
Vahanvati to appear for the Prime Minister.
