In a huge setback to corporate honcho Anshuman S. Ruia and Ravi S. Ruia and their company Essar Teleholding, the Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld their trial by the Special CBI court trying 2G scam cases, rejecting their plea that they should instead be tried by a magisterial court.


"Dismissed their plea and their writ petition," said apex court bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu, Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Rohinton F. Nariman in their judgement on Tuesday.
