The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday sought the cancellation of bail granted to Swan Telecom Promoter Shahid Usman Balwa in the 2G spectrum allocation scam, saying his conduct requires reconsideration and recall of the relief given to him earlier.

The agency was responding to Balwa’s plea seeking permission to withdraw answers given by him earlier to court in the ongoing case trial.

“The conduct of A-4 (Balwa) in replying to the questions by including objectionable content… is certainly in flagrant violation and breach of faith so reposed and the condition so imposed and, as such, the grant of bail to him requires reconsideration and recall by the court” the CBI told Special CBI Judge OP Saini who is hearing the 2G case.

The agency said that the court should take proper action on the issue as per law and may cancel the bail granted to the accused.

The agency also claimed “The trend and slant in replies given by accused person shows that the objectionable content was not inadvertent but included deliberately. It is also noticeable that all the accused have the same group of advocates and the objectionable content so included is thus not attributed merely to these accused”.

The court has fixed the matter for further hearing on May 28.
