DMK supremo, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's daughter, Kanimozhi has been named as the co-conspirator in the 2G spectrum scandal. The former telecom minister A Raja, who is in Tihar jail, is accused of taking bribe.
However, the CBI did not name Karunanidhi's wife Dayalu Ammal in the second charge-sheet. Though sources earlier claimed that Dayalu Ammal's name might have appeared in the CBI's supplementary charge-sheet.
The special CBI court headed by OP Saini will investigate in the case as to how over Rs 200 crore was illegally routed by Raja, his slain aide Sadiq Batcha and Shahid Usman Balwa, the former Managing Director of DB Realty to DMK-owned Kalaignar TV, jointly owned by Kanimozhi, Dayalu Ammal and Sharad Kumar, sources said.
Kanimozhi, Dayalu Ammal and Kumar, Managing Director of the TV, have 20, 60 and 20 percent shares in the channel respectively.
The CBI had earlier told the court that Rs 200 crore connected with the 2G spectrum scam had travelled from a partnership firm of Balwa to Kalaignar TV.
