New Delhi, Dec 3 (ANI): Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) Member of Parliament Kanimozhi, who was granted bail in the 2G spectrum scam by court on November 28, on Saturday said she would prove her innocence and get out of the case legally.
"It is a very happy feeling for me to be going to Chennai. But more than the bail, it is important for me and the others to prove our innocence," she told reporters here before boarding a flight to Chennai.
"Of course, this is a first step, I think in the case and I mean more than the bail, of course we are all happy that finally people are getting bail in this case but more than that I think I have to prove my innocence and I'm quite sure that I'll be able to do that. Face this case legally and get out of it," she added.
Apart from Kanimozhi, the other accused granted bail yesterday in the case include Cineyug founder Karim Morani, Kalaignar TV"s MD Sharath Kumar, Kusegaon directors Asif Balwa and Rajeev Agarwal.

Former Telecom Minister A. Raja was sacked in November last year and later arrested after being charged with giving away telecom licences in 2008 for a pittance as indicated in the CAG report. (ANI)
