The Enforcement Directorate  (ED)  has challenged the acquittal of former telecom minister A Raja, DMK MP and others in the 2G spectrum allocation cases, according to news agency PTI. 

Raja, Kanimozhi and all other accused in this case were acquitted in December last year by a CBI court in Delhi.

The court had said in its ruling that  the prosecution "miserably failed" to prove the charges against all the accused in this case. 

CBI judge OP Saini said that the CBI could not prove that the then telecom minister A Raja, along with officials from companies that won the licenses for telecom services, had conspired to receive kickbacks from the sale of phone permits.

It was alleged that Raja’s decision had caused a loss of Rs. 1.76 lakh crore to the exchequer. 

"I have absolutely no hesitation in holding that the prosecution has miserably failed to prove any charge against any of the accused, made in its well choreographed chargesheet," the judge had said.
