Venugopal to join CBI legal team in 2G spectrum case in SC



New Delhi: The government on Saturday briefed the CBI's legal team to argue the 2G spectrum case in the Supreme Court by inducting eminent lawyer KK 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 GE 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.
