Kanimozhi
New Delhi, Jun 20: DMK MP Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV MD, Sharad Kumar's repeated appeal for bail have fallen to deaf ears after the Supreme Court rejected their bail plea for the third time on Jun 20 (today).

The order came after CBI and Kanimozhi's defence lawyers had an argument in the court. According to the CBI, original documents related to the transaction of Rs 200 crore to Kalaignar TV are yet to be recovered.

Kanimozhi has been asked to reapply for bail to the trial court.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court said that rejection of Kanimozhi's bail will not affect her chances of bail in the trial court.

"Bail rejection won't have any bearing on the application in the trial  court," said the Supreme Court.

The upset DMK leaders met after Supreme Court rejected the bail plea of Kanimozhi.

Sources earlier said that the DMK MP, Kanimozhi will reiterate her argument of "being a mother" to seek special "sympathy" for herself in the court. Kanimozhi's lawyer Ram Jethmalani had made the same argument earlier but failed to gain any sympathy from the trial court and Delhi High Court.

Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar allegedly received a bribe of Rs 200 crore from Cineyug Films through Shahid Balwa's DB Realty. However, Kanimozhi still stands by her argument that the alleged Rs 200 crore bribe was in actuality a loan from Cineyug and was availed at market rate for the channel's operations.

The detained DMK MP also added that she had repaid the loan amount along with interest abiding all statutory laws on business transaction. Kanimozhi also commenced that the Delhi High Court had made a mistake rejecting her bail plea and put forth her stand saying, she was only charged with conspiracy while not connived to illegal distribution of spectrum licenses or had abused her power of authority.

The CBI has so far claimed that both Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar could hamper with the evidence against them if the duo gets bail.
