New Delhi, May 23: A Delhi court on Monday, May 23, dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Cineyug Films Director, Karim Morani, an accused in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

Special CBI Judge, O P Saini, dismissed Morani's plea seeking anticipatory bail on health grounds, saying his medical condition is "normal and stable".

The court has now directed Morani to appear before it on Tuesday, May 24.

"In view of the medical condition of the accused (Morani) being normal and stable, I am satisfied that no case for anticipatory bail on medical ground is made out. The application is without merit and the same is dismissed," the court said.

Senior advocate, Siddharth Luthra, appearing for Morani had submitted before the court that the medical condition of Morani is not such that he should be placed under custody as he may not be able to bear the stressful environment of being placed in custody.

"I may also add that in case of need, proper medical facilities are available in Tihar Jail itself and if an undertrial/prisoner requires any further treatment, he is immediately taken to RML hospital or AIIMS, as per the requirement of the situation.

"So proper medical facilities are available to all prisoners in case of necessity and this ground cannot be pressed now when as good facilities as are available outside are available to an undertrial in the jail itself," the court said.

CBI, in its second charge sheet in 2G case, had alleged that Swan Telecom and Dynamix Realty Promoters Shahid Usman Balwa and Vinod Goenka channeled Rs 200 crore to DMK family-run Kalaignar TV, through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd and Morani's Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd.

DMK MP, Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV MD, Sharad Kumar, accused in the 2G scam, are already in judicial custody after the court denied bail to them on May 20.
