New Delhi: DMK MP Kanimozhi "thanked everone" after she was acquitted by a special court
in the 2G spectrum scam case on Thursday.

"I would love to thank everyone who stood by me," Kanimozhi, Rajya Sabha MP said reported ANI.

In an exclusive conversation with ABP News she said-"We suffered for seven years...it was a conspiracy."

"It's been a very difficult experience. The entire case was built and framed on a notional loss and it has fallen apart. It is a big day for us as finally the judge said there was nothing in it," Kanimozhi said.

"We are very happy that others have proved their innocence," she further added.



Former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi were today acquitted by a special court
in the 2G spectrum scam case.

Fifteen other accused in the case and three companies were also acquitted.

Others acquitted in the case are former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura, Raja's erstwhile private secretary R K Chandolia, Swan Telecom promoters Shahid Usman Balwa and Vinod Goenka, Unitech Ltd MD Sanjay Chandra and three top executives of Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (RADAG) -- Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair.

"We are waiting for copy of the judgement. We will take legal opinion on it after that," said CBI.



Directors of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal, Kalaignar TV director Sharad Kumar and Bollywood producer Karim Morani are also acquitted in the case.

Besides them, three telecom firms -- Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd (STPL), Reliance Telecom Ltd and Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Ltd -- were also accused and 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.

All the accused facing trial in these cases had denied allegations levelled against them by the CBI and the ED.

The court had in October 2011 framed charges against them under various provisions of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act dealing with offences of criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery, using as genuine fake documents, abusing official position, criminal misconduct by public servant and
taking bribe.
