New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today issued notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the bail pleas of Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) MP Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar in the 2G spectrum case.
“Issue notice to the CBI for May 30,” Justice Ajit Bharihoke, who yesterday dismissed the bail pleas of five corporate honchos in the case, said.
The court also asked the probe agency to file a status report detailing the stage of investigation and the judicial proceedings in the case on the next date of hearing.
Kanimozhi, the 43-year-old daughter of DMK Supremo M Karunanidhi, and Sharad Kumar had approached the high court on Monday with their bail applications after the special CBI court order their “forthwith” arrest on May 20.
Rejecting their bail applications, the special court had said that the offence attributed to them was grave and the possibility of influencing the witnesses cannot be ruled out.
