Kanimozhi, Sharad Kumar's bail pleas dismissed

DMK MP Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV managing director Sharad Kumar will continue to remain behind bars as the Delhi High Court Wednesday (08-June-2011) rejected their bail pleas in the 2G spectrum scam.
The DMK MP had stated that she should be granted bail since she has a young son to look after and her husband lives abroad. She also pointed out that she was the only woman who has been jailed in connection with the 2G spectrum scam.

"There are certain prima facie evidences against the accused. Considering the complicity of the accused in the offence, the bail applications are dismissed," Justice Ajit Bharihoke said.

Kanimozhi's mother Rajathi Ammal and DMK parliamentary party leader T R Baalu were present in the courtroom when the order was pronounced.

Kanimozhi, the 43-year-old daughter of DMK supremo M Karunanidhi and Sharad Kumar, named as accused in the second charge sheet for allegedly taking bribe of Rs 200 crore, were arrested on May 20 after the special court dismissed their bail pleas in the case.

Other co-accused in Tihar Jail are Raja, his aide R.K. Chandolia, former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura, Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa, Swan Telecom director Vinod Goenka, Unitech Wireless's Sanjay Chandra and three executives of the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group - Gautam Doshi, Hari Nair and Surendra Pipara.
