New Delhi: Following the rejection of her bail plea by the Delhi High Court in the 2G scam, DMK lawmaker Kanimozhi is going to knock the door of the Supreme Court today.
Both Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV Managing Director Sharad Kumar have been behind bars in Tihar Jail since May 20. They were arrested after their names were mentioned in the CBI’s supplementary chargesheet in the 2G scam.
The high court yesterday rejected Kanimozhi and Kumar’s bail petitions, saying there was prima facie evidence against them.
The judge said there was enough reason to believe that the accused received illegal gratification of Rs 200 crore in the account of Kalaignar TV and tried to hide the money trail.
The judge said that if released on bail, Kanimozhi and Kumar could influence witnesses, many of whom work at Kalaignar TV.
