Loop Teleholding promoters Kiran Khaitan and I.P. Khaitan, along with Essar group promoters, have been facing trial in the case.

The Supreme Court Feb 2 cancelled 122 licences issued to telecom companies by former telecom minister A. Raja in 2008. The apex court also asked the central government to auction the 2G spectrum again.

Alleging that the guidelines of Unified Access Services Licence (UASL) were vague and ambiguous, the Khaitans also challenged the UASL guidelines.

"The vague and ambiguous provision of Clause 8 of UASL guidelines have caused grave prejudice and violated the fundamental rights of the petitioners," said Khaitans in the petition.
