Out of prison and straight to business
A Raja, the prime accused in the 2G spectrum scam, on Wednesday attended parliamentary proceedings a day after being released from Tihar Jail -- where he was lodged following his arrest over the case on February 1 last year.
Dressed in white shirt and black trousers, 49-year-old Raja got down from his car and entered the Parliament. He then went straight to the Lok Sabha.
The former telecom minister appeared cheerful but did not speak to reporters who jostled to get a quote from him.
The DMK member from Nilgiris constituency in Tamil Nadu attended the Lok Sabha briefly during Zero Hour in the afternoon and exchanged pleasantries with some members. He was seated for a couple of minutes in the last row before making a quiet exit with some DMK members. He left Parliament premises shortly thereafter.
