All other accused and three companies were also acquitted in the case. Special CBI Judge O P Saini pronounced the judgement in the 2G scam which had rocked the UPA government. In its charge sheet filed in April 2011 against Raja and others, the CBI had alleged that there was a loss of Rs 30,984 crore to the exchequer in allocation of 122 licences for 2G spectrum which were scrapped by the Supreme Court on February 2, 2012.

A Raja's lawyer said there was never a case and his client was made a scapegoat.

DMK MP Kanimozhi said, "At last justice has prevailed."

Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said the verdict will reverberate across the country.
