Shivraj Patil New Delhi, Jan 31 (ANI): The one man committee headed by retired Supreme Court Justice Shivraj Patil on Monday submitted the report on 2G spectrum allotment scam to Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal.

Patil after submitting the report to Sibal, told the reporters that the terms of the probe were to look at the procedure of issuing licences and the lapses at the procedure.

“I have stuck to may mandate and terms of reference.” Patil added.

Justice Patil was appointed by Telecom department to probe the 2G Spectrum scam.

Former Telecom Minister A Raja has until now maintained that he has followed all procedures by the book. He also maintained that all moves were made with the Prime Minister’s knowledge

Raja was forced to resign as communications minister last year after the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) indicted him in the spectrum allocation scam, which it said could have caused losses between Rs.58,000 crore and Rs.1.76 lakh crore to the exchequer.

Raja is alleged to have sold spectrum licences at prices much lower than the market rate. (ANI)
