The judges added: "We direct the competent investigating agencies to complete the investigation within six months in all the cases and aspects concerned with 2G spectrum case".

On 21 December, a special CBI court acquitted all accused in the 2G case citing lack of evidence. "Tell us, how much investigation is pending and why have you not been able to complete the probe yet", the bench said.
