Kanimozhi
New Delhi, Jun 17: In response to DMK MP Kanimozhi's bail plea in the Supreme Court, CBI on Friday, Jun 17 opposed her bail plea again in an 80 page affidavit.

The SC earlier had adjourned the hearing of the case till Monday, Jun 20 and also issued a notice to the investigating agency CBI asking to file a response on the bail plea filed by Kanimozhi.

The CBI said that investigation into the 2g scam case had reached its peak and it would be inappropriate if Kanimozhi would be granted a bail.

Kanimozhi, daughter of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Karunanidhi, moved the SC after her second bail plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court. Before this, the HC had dismissed the bail plea of Kanimozhi and the 2G spectrum co-accused Kalaignar TV MD, Sharad Kumar, on Jun 8.

HC rejected Kanimozhi's bail plea after CBI opposed it saying that the bail may help her to influence witnesses.

Her bail plea was earlier rejected on May 20 by Justice OP Saini, a special CBI Judge, after she was charged over her alleged involvement in the 2G spectrum scam for accepting a bribe of Rs 214 crore for Kalaignar TV.
