The CBI had earlier stated that it will not oppose the bail plea of Kanimozhi and 4 others who were accused in the case.
RK Chandolia and Shahid Balwa's bail plea will however be heard on Oct 31st. The CBI had opposed the bail plea of the duo.
The matter will be a big setback for DMK Chief Karunanidhi who was stationed in New Delhi till the time Kanimozhi secures bail. He had lobbied hard by meeting Sonia Gandhi and PM Manmohan Singh ahead of the bail plea hearing.
