2G scam: Kanimozhi, others denied bail
TT correspondent |  |  03 Nov 2011

A Delhi court on Thursday rejected the bail pleas of DMK MP Kanimozhi and seven other accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

The court posted the case for further hearing on November 11, when the trial will begin.

The accused can move the High Court for bail, however as the case is under the scrutiny of the Supreme Court, the apex court’s view on it would be important.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini had on September 24 reserved the order on the bail pleas of Kanimozhi, Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa, former telecom minister A Raja's ex-private secretary R K Chandolia, Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar, Directors of Kusegaon Fruits & Vegetables Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal and Bollywood producer Karim Morani.


The CBI had preferred not to oppose the bail pleas of Kanimozhi and four others during the arguments on the ground that they faced specific charges, apart from the "umbrella section" of 120-B (criminal conspiracy) IPC, which entail five years sentence as maximum punishment.


The agency has also slapped charges of criminal breach of trust under section 409 of the IPC which carries life term as maximum punishment, against Kanimozhi and four others.

Denying her bail is inhuman. She has spent five months in Tihar without conviction. it is not good for the law of the land.
