Special CBI Judge O. P. Saini reserved his order on framing charges against five corporate honchos of Loop Telecom and Essar Group, as also three other telecom firms.
The was after the CBI and defence counsel of Essar and Loop promoters concluded their arguments.
The Essar Group and Loop Telecom have strongly opposed all charges against them.
