New Delhi, May 11(ANI): Former Telecom Minister and a key accused in the 2G telecom scam A Raja's bail plea is likely to be heard in a Delhi court today.

Raja had filed the application soon after former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura, who was arrested along with him on 2nd February last year, was granted bail by the Supreme Court.
Raja, in his bail plea, had contended that he is "innocent" and the case against him is "false and fabricated".
