A.K. Srivastava to be cross-examined by A.Raja

By Parvina Purkayastha - Mon Sep 10, 4:48 pm

The testimony of Srivastava assumes significance as he claims Raja was final authority to take decisions on policy matters.

The former deputy director general of the Department of Telecom, A.K Srivastava will be cross-examined, by the  prime accused in the 2G spectrum allocation case and the former telecom minister A Raja who had spent nearly 15 months in jail.

Raja had earlier sought Special CBI Judge OP Saini’s permission to defer his cross-examination of prosecution witness and Department of Telecom’s former Deputy Director General (AS) A K Srivastava, due to unavailability of his counsel Sushil Kumar.

The testimony of Srivastava has assumed significance as he had claimed that Raja was final authority to take decisions on policy matters.

Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi, along with others, are facing trial for various offences like criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and faking documents under the Indian Penal Code and for the offences of abusing official position, getting bribe and criminal misconduct by public servant under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
