Kani bail plea: HC issues notice to CBI

Justice Ajit Bharihoke sought a response from the probe agency on the plea also filed by Kalaignar TV CEO Sharad Kumar and posted the matter for hearing on May 30.

Both Kanimozhi and Kumar were arrested on May 20 and sent to Tihar jail here after the Special Judge rejected their applications for bail.

They are accused of receiving over Rs 200 crore from Shahid Usman Balwa’s D B Realty for Kalaignar TV in lieu of allocation of licence to Swan Telecom. In its brief hearing, the Court directed the CBI to file status report on the investigations as well as proceedings being conducted before the trial Court in the case pegged to have caused a presumptive loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore by government auditor.
