Kanimozhi
New Delhi, Mar 2: While the 2G spectrum scam still remains very much in the limelight and with revelations coming out with every passing day, the latest person to fall under the investigating agencies scanner is Kanimozhi, Rajya Sabha MP and daughter of DMK Chief and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi.

Sources have revealed that the CBI will question Kanimozhi to understand the puzzling 2G scam. The point of reference is Swan Telecom's loan to Kalaignar TV to the tune of Rs 200 crore. The popular TV channel is owned by Kanimozhi and her step-mother Dayalu Ammal.

The CBI had recently raided the channel's office after reports revealed that A Raja had invested heavily in the channel with kickbacks he received from Swan Telecom. Swan Telecom was unfairly given the licenses during Raja's regime. Shahid Balwa, the telecom company promoter has been arrested and investigations are underway.

However, sources within the TV channel claim that the Rs 200 crore payment was considered an investment and would be repaid. Kanimozhi had said after the raids on her TV channel, "I haven't got any summons from the CBI. Kalaignar TV has already explained that they have nothing to hide."
