2G: Kanimozhi allowed to visit Tamil Nadu on dad's birthday

DMK MP Kanimozhi, facing trial in the 2G spectrum allocation scam, has been allowed by a Delhi court to visit Tamil Nadu on June 3 to celebrate the birthday of her father and party patriarch M Karunanidhi.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini also allowed Kanimozhi's plea for exemption from personal appearance from the court.

Kanimozhi was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on November 28, nearly six months after she was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on May 20, 2011.

The CBI had arrested her for allegedly receiving Rs 200 crore bribe through the DMK-run Kalaignar TV from Shahid Balwa's DB Group.

Kanimozhi is facing trial in the case along with 13 persons and three companies.
