Karunanidhi anxious, hopeful Kanimozhi will get bail

"We are hopeful that Kanimozhi will be out on bail today (Monday). Kanimozhi should have got bail earlier...there is lot of politics behind the scene," DMK spokesperson T.K.S. Elangovan told IANS.

"She has been in jail for over five months which is a punishment. She is only an accused in the case and denying bail to accused is wrong... all the accused have the right to get bail," he added.

The 88-year-old former Tamil Nadu chief minister and his wife Rajathi with grandson Adithya have been in Delhi since Friday.

"Kalaignar is very anxious, he is hopeful that his daughter will get bail. He will not come to the court. But Rajathi Ammal and Adithya will be present in the court," he said.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court last week charged Kanimozhi, an MP who has been in Tihar Jail, with criminal conspiracy and criminal breach of trust.

The court is hearing the bail applications of various accused in the 2G case, including that of Kanimozhi, Monday.
