In a major relief to Finance Minister P Chidambaram, Supreme Court today rejected the plea to make him co-accused along with former communications minister A Raja in the 2G spectrum allocation case.
Rejecting Janata Party president Subramaniam Swamy's plea, the apex court bench of Justice GS Singhvi and Justice SK Radhakrishnan said the material made available by the petitioner did not support the allegation.
Swamy had moved the apex court challenging a Feb 4 order by a trial court rejecting his plea to make Chidambaram co-accused and seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against him.
