Kanimozhi bail plea to be heard tomorrow

kannimozhiNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court has decided to consider the bail pleas of DMK MP Kanimozhi and five others accused in the 2G scam tomorrow. Kanimozhi and five others accused in the 2G spectrum case had filed a petition in the Delhi High Court seeking early hearing of their bail pleas. The accused have challenged the Special Court’s November 3 order denying them bail.The court accepted their applications when it came up today.

Their move came in the wake of the Supreme Court granting bail to five corporate executives co-accused in the case – Unitech Wireless’ former MD Sanjay Chandra, Swan Telecom’s Director Vinod Goenka and Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group’s executives Hari Nair, Gautam Doshi and Surendra Pipara. After being granted bail, they walked out of Tihar Jail yesterday.

Along with Kanimozhi the court would consider the bail plea of Kalaignar TV chief Sharath Kumar, Cineyug Films’ Karim Morani, Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd directors Asif Balwa and Rajiv B. Agarwal, and former Telecom Secretary Siddharth Behura

Kanimozhi has argued that keeping her in jail any longer is a violation of her fundamental rights. She says she should be granted bail as even the investigating agency was not opposing her plea.
