The Delhi high court on Friday dismissed the bail plea of former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

Justice V K Shali had reserved the order on the bail plea of Behura on December 1.

Only Behura and former telecom minister A Raja, who were arrested on February 2, are left in jail as the other 12 accused, including DMK MP Kanimozhi, are out on bail.

During the hearing, CBI, which did not oppose the bail plea of five other accused also including Karim Morani, however, had sought “stricter scrutiny” of such pleas by a public servant as he is custodian of government properties.

Additional solicitor general Mohan Parasaran, appearing for CBI, said if Behura was released then Raja may also seek the same relief on the ground of parity.
