2G scam: Kanimozhi moves Supreme Court for bail

Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) lawmaker Kanimozhi on Friday (10-June-2011) moved the Supreme Court for her bail in the 2G spectrum scam, even as party patriarch Karunanidhi called a top-brass meeting of the party to review its alliance with the Congress at the Centre.
"We have filed a Special Leave Petition on behalf of both Kanimozhi and Kumar challenging the High Court order," senior advocate V G Pargasm said.

The Delhi High Court had denied her bail on Wednesday in the 2G spectrum scam; she is lodged in the Tihar Jail. The CBI has charged Kanimozhi with accepting Rs 214 crore as bribe along with former telecom minister A Raja who was arrested in February and is in Tihar Jail. Sharad Kumar co-owns a TV channel with Kanimozhi in Chennai.

DMK chief Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal, who has been left out of the list of accused, owns the remaining 60 per cent shares in the Tamil television channel - Kalaignar TV.
