The Delhi High court has rejected the bail petition of Siddharth Behura, former Telecom Secretary. Mr Behura is among the 14 people who were arrested for the telecom scam allegedly masterminded by A Raja when he headed the Telecom Ministry in 2008.
12 people - including executives from Reliance ADAG and Unitech - have been granted bail recently. There were three public servants accused of criminal conspiracy and breach of public trust- Mr Raja, RK Chandolia and Mr Behura. Mr Chandolia, who was Mr Raja's Personal Secretary, was granted bail a few days ago.
Mr Behura and Mr Raja remain in prison.
