    2G scam: Jail for Kanimozhi as court rejects bail plea
    Agencies | May 20, 2011, 02.34pm IST

    NEW DELHI: DMK MP Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV chief Sharad Kumar, named as co-conspirators in the 2G spectrum scam, were on Friday taken into custody after a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court rejected their bail pleas.

    CBI special judge O.P. Saini said: "Both the bail applications (of Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar) are dismissed. As per the court orders, they are to be taken into custody."

    Kanimozhi, who was accompanied in court by her husband Aravindan and was clad in an orange salwar-kurta, tried to regain her composure after the judgment was pronounced and later told her supporters that "she was expecting the decision".

    Her security guard burst into tears as the judge announced his decision.

    The CBI had named Kanimozhi, daughter of DMK chief M. Karunanidhi, and Sharad Kumar as co-conspirators in its April 25 supplementary chargesheet after it traced an illegal money trail of Rs.214 crore in the scam.

    As the judge pronounced the verdict, co-accused -- and former communications minister -- A. Raja looked shocked. The DMK MP is already in jail in connection with the case, related to irregularities in the allocation of airwaves to telecom companies that caused huge losses to the exchequer.

    Kanimozhi and Kumar had appeared in court in the morning and were told that the decision on their bail pleas would be made after 1 pm. The hearing was then adjourned till 2.30 pm.

    Also present in the courtroom on Friday were former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura, Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Balwa, Raja's aide R.K. Chandolia, Vinod Goenka of Swan Telecom and Sanjay Chandra of Unitech.

    Two officials of ADAG, Gautam Doshi and Hari Nair, who were also named in the charge sheet, were present in the courtroom.

    Cineyug Film's Karim Morani was not present as he got exemption from personal appearance due to his ill health, while Surendra Pipara of Reliance, who is in judicial custody, was also not present in the court as he is undergoing treatment for a heart problem at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

    Kalaignar TV channel had earlier stated that the Rs.214 crore it got was a loan and paid back with interest.

    Good step but I don't care whom they put behind bars all I wanted is my 1454.54Rs (= 1,76,000/121) back.:angry:

    However if govt. intend to make roads , colleges, school ,hopitals or buy weapon with this money then they can keep the money, but first make sure to get this money back from Raja & company present in Tihar Chamber of Commerce.

    SC dashes Kanimozhi''s hopes of bail in 2G scam
    PTI | 04:06 PM,Jun 20,2011

    New Delhi, Jun 20 (PTI) DMK MP Kanimozhi''s hopes of winning freedom from jail in the 2G spectrum allocation scam were dashed today as the Supreme Court dismissed her bail plea along with that of co-accused Kalaignar TV managing Director Sharad Kumar. Rejecting their pleas, a special bench of justices G S Singhvi and B S Chauhan, however, left a window of hope for them saying that they can approach the trial court for regular bail after the framing of charges against them in the scam. Today''s stipulation by the apex court virtually puts a bar on grant of bail not only to her but also to the other high-profile accused, including former Telecom Minister A Raja and several senior corporate executives, till the framing of charges in the case, which may take a few months. The apex court order came as a surprise for the lawyers and the family members of the two accused as they were hopeful of getting relief from the bench which appeared receptive to their pleas for bail during the 90-minute hearing. The arguments were heard from 10.30 am to 12 noon and the court reserved the orders for 12.30 pm, which it delivered. During the arguments, Kanimozhi pleaded to the court that she is a mother and she should not be denied the company of her child. She said she was ready to accept and abide by any condition that might be imposed upon her by the court for grant of bail. (More) PTI KRH AAC RB RAX
