Kanimozhi seeks bail, court to decide Saturday

New Delhi: Challenging Kanimozhi's bail plea in the special court, the CBI prosecutor Saturday said the DMK MP was the "active brain" associated with co-accused A. Raja in the second generation (2G) spectrum allotment issue.

"It is totally false that she was not at all aware of the transfer of Rs.200 crore to Kalaignar TV, because she was the director at that time. Kanimozhi is the active brain behind the entire episode of the 2G spectrum scam," CBI prosecutor U.U. Lalit said to Special CBI Judge O.P. Saini.

"It was later that she resigned from Kalignar TV as she was also the MP. Sharad Kumar took over at that time," Lalit said.

The Central Bureau of investigation (CBI) had Friday stated the link between former communications minister A. Raja and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi in the scam.

"It is totally baseless to say that Kanimozhi was not associated to Raja. She has fully participated along with Raja from the beginning till the end of the second generation spectrum allocation," Lalit had argued.

Senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani, arguing for Kanimozhi, had stated Kanimozhi's dissociation with Raja, who is in jail for his alleged role in the case.

"Even if we assume that Raja got transferred the Rs.200 crore bribe money from Dynamix Group to Kalaignar TV, no guilt is proved against me as I did not sign any document on behalf of the recipient TV channel," Jethmalani argued for Kanimozhi, who has a stake in Kalaignar TV.

The CBI had alleged in its chargesheet that Kanimozhi had actively pursued with intermediaries and her party the reappointment of Raja as communications minister.

Kanimozhi had applied for bail Friday, but the court deferred the decision till Saturday.

Besides Kanimozhi, the court will also decide on the bail pleas of the other accused -- Kalaignar TV chief Sharad Kumar, Asif Balwa and Rajiv B. Agarwal of Kusegaon Realty.
