New Delhi: Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal said that government has nothing to say on the order of a Delhi court which has summoned telecom major Airtel's chief Sunil Bharti Mittal, among others, as an accused in a spectrum allocation case during the earlier NDA regime.

"The CBI chose not to consider him (Mittal) as an accused. The court has summoned him (as an accused), there is nothing that we can say. If there are any consequence, that has nothing to do with the government," Sibal said when asked about his view as Telecom Minister on the matter.

The Minister was talking to media on sidelines of a function organised by Department of Telecommunication for new version of Internet addresses, IPv6.

Though Mittal's name was not mentioned in CBI's charge sheet as an accused, the court in its order said it was taking cognizance of the case and issuing summons to all the seven accused, including him.

Mittal was "prima facie" in "control of affairs" of his company Bharti Cellular which was charged by the CBI, the court had said.
