New Delhi, April 15: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) told the special CBI court that former telecom minister A Raja had misled the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the policy regarding the 2G spectrum allocation.

Raja had allegedly showed favours to the accused firms including Swan Telecom and Unitech Wireless Ltd in the 2G allocation.

In the final arguments in the case today, the CBI alleged Raja of giving wrong information to the then PM for his benefits. This had led to the loss of Rs 30,984 crore to the exchequer in allocation of 122 licences for 2G spectrum.

Besides Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi, former Telecom Secretary Siddharth Behura, Raja's former private secretary R K Chandolia, Swan Telecom promoters Shahid Usman Balwa and Vinod Goenka, Unitech Ltd MD Sanjay Chandra, three top executives of Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (RADAG) - Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair - are facing trial in the case.
