2G Scam case: A Raja walks out of Tihar jail – NewsX



Over 15 months after his arrest, former telecom minister A Raja walked out of Tihar jail on Tuesday evening. Raja, the main accused in the Rs 30,000 crore 2G scam who had desisted from applying for bail for over fifteen months, was today granted freedom by a Delhi court which dismissed CBI’s apprehensions that he will tamper with evidence. The 49-year-old former telecom minister and currently MP, was granted bail by the special 2G court on an application filed by him last week, holding that his further detention would not serve any purpose as all the other 13 co-accused have already been out of jail.
