Kanimozhi, 4 others get bail in 2G case, to spend one more night in Tihar Jail

IndiaTimes of India, PTI | Nov 28, 2011

NEW DELHI: DMK MP Kanimozhi and four others, who were on Monday granted bail by the Delhi high court in 2G spectrum case, will have to wait one more night behind the bars as release warrants could not be issued by the special judge due to procedural delay.

The delay was caused as the certified copy of the high court's order, which was required to be submitted along with the bail bonds before special CBI Judge O P Saini, could not be furnished within the working hours of the trial court.

The special judge waited in his chamber till 5.15pm on the request of lawyers appearing for the accused but the order was not placed before him in time.

Kanimozhi's counsel R Shunmugasundaram said they would furnish the bail bonds before the trial court on Tuesday morning to get the release order.

"We will submit the bail bond tomorrow morning," he said.

Earlier, in a huge relief to DMK MP Kanimozhi and four others who have been in Tihar jail for over six months for their alleged role in the 2G case, the Delhi high court on Monday granted them bail treating them on par with five others released by the Supreme Court last week.

"I grant bail to five persons. The conditions would be same as imposed by the Supreme Court," Justice V K Shali said.

Besides Kanimozhi, others who were granted bail are Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar, Bollywood filmmaker Karim Morani and Kusegaon Fruits and vegetables Pvt Ltd directors Rajiv Aggarwal and Asif Balwa.

The court, however, reserved its order on the bail plea of sixth accused and former telecom secretary Siddhartha Behura, saying it will pronounce its judgement later as his plea has been opposed by the CBI.

"You (Behura) file your written submissions to the contentions of the CBI," Justice Shali told Behura's counsel, senior advocate Aman Lekhi.

Earlier, during the day, additonal solicitor general Mohan Parasaran said the probe agency was not opposed to grant of bail to the five persons except Behura and they can be released on the ground of parity as the Supreme Court has already given the same benefit to five other co-accused in the case.

The ASG, however, opposed Behura's bail plea saying the bail pleas of public servants require stricter scrutiny as they are the trustees of public property.

Kanimozhi and five others had moved the high court on November 23 for advancing the hearing of their bail pleas, shortly after the Supreme Court had granted bail to five corporate executives -- Unitech Limited MD Sanjay Chandra, Swan Telecom director Vinod Goenka and Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group executives Gautam Doshi, Hari Nair and Surendra Pipara.

Their bail pleas were earlier scheduled for hearing on December 1. Kanimozhi and five others had come to the apex court challenging the trial court's November 3 order denying them the bail.

The Supreme Court had granted bail to the five corporate honchos on the condition that they would surrender their passports and will not go abroad without the court's permission.

It had further said that the accused will have to appear before the Special CBI court on each hearing and have to take prior permission for not attending the proceedings.

Former telecom minister A Raja, who is the main accused in the scam, has so far not approached any court for bail.

Other accused in the case include Raja's former private secretary R K Chandolia and Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa.

Three telecom firms Reliance Telecom Ltd, Swan Telecom and Unitech (Tamil Nadu) Wireless Ltd too have been listed as accused in the CBI chargesheet in the case.

The CBI had chargesheeted 14 persons in the scam, with Raja being the first to be arrested on February 2, along with Chandolia and Behura.

Karunanidhi elated over Kanimozhi getting bail

CHENNAI: An elated DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Monday expressed happiness over his daughter Kanimozhi getting bail in the 2G case and said the party would organise a big welcome for her, when she arrives here.

"I am happy that Kanimozhi has been granted bail. She spoke to me soon after the court gave her bail and both of us shared the happiness," Karunanidhi, who met his daughter thrice in Tihar Jail, where she was lodged after her arrest on May 20, told reporters here.

"I am not an autocrat. Party will decide on giving new position to Kanimozhi," he said when asked whether she would be given a new position in the party.

To a question on former telecom minister A Raja seeking bail, he said if Raja spoke to him, "I will discuss about his bail."
