New Delhi, June 17 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) opposed the bail plea of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) lawmaker Kanimozhi in the 2G spectrum case in the Supreme Court on Friday.
The investigating agency, which has accused her of accepting a 214-crore kickback from the 2G scam, has filed an 80-page affidavit in the apex court in this regard.
The Supreme Court, earlier on June 13, adjourned Kanimozhi's bail plea till June 20 in the 2G scam case.
A vacation Bench of Justices B S Chauhan and Swatanter Kumar took up the matter, which was listed as Item No. 16.
The apex court bench had then also issued notice to the CBI asking it to file its response on the bail plea of Kanimozhi by June 20.
The apex court asked CBI to inform it as to what happened to Rs 200 crore allegedly given to Kalaignar TV by Cineyug Films and also asked the probe agency to state the loss incurred by exchequer in granting licences to telecom companies during A Raja"s tenure.
The Delhi High Court had on June 8 rejected Kanimozhi's bail plea in the 2G spectrum case.
Kanimozhi had in her petition earlier challenged the trial court's order calling for her to be sent to custody.
She was arrested on May 20 after a special Delhi court dismissed her bail plea.
The CBI had claimed that Kanimozhi lobbied for Raja to become a Union Cabinet minister. The CBI also argued that Asif Balwa, who is the director of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd was the front man in the entire scam.
The agency presented before the court, details of the Rs 200 crore transactions by the Kalaignar TV.
The CBI said that a total number of 16 bank accounts were used in the transactions. The money first came from DB Realty to Kusegaon. It then went to Cineyug Film Company from where it was routed to Kalaignar TV.
She has been named as co-conspirator in CBI"s second chargesheet in the scam.
Kanimozhi has been charged under Sections 7 and 11 of the Prevention of Corruption Act. The chargesheet said the investigation into the case disclosed that money had travelled from DB Realty to Kalaignar TV.
The supplementary chargesheet filed by the investigating agency has also named as co-accused Sharad Kumar, Karim Morani of Cineyug Films, and Asif Balwa and Rajiv B Agarwal of Kusegaon Realty. (ANI)
