Former communications minister A. Raja’s counsel Friday termed his ex-aide Aseevatham Achary untruthful, saying he was trying to influence the course of the trial in the 2G case.
Achary, a key witness in the case, had Thursday said in the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court that there was a threat to his life.
Raja’s counsel Sushil Kumar told special CBI judge O.P. Saini that the drama created by Achary was meant to impact the hearing on the bail plea of Raja’s ex-private secretary R.K. Chandolia.
Chandolia’s bail plea is scheduled for hearing in the Supreme Court Jan 2.
To this, Saini said if Achary would have made the disclosure earlier, many of the accused in the case would not have been granted bail.
