Kanimozhi, four others get bail; Behura still in jail
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Monday granted bail to DMK MP Kanimozhi and four other accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case. The order on the bail plea of former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura was reserved.
Allowing bail to Kanimozhi and the other four, Justice V.K. Shali said all the five bail “applications are allowed”.
Conditions set by the Supreme Court while granting bail to five co-accused and telecom companies’ officials will also apply in the case of Kanimozhi and the other four, the high court said.
Besides Kanimozhi, bail was granted to Kalaignar TV chief Sharad Kumar, Cineyug Films’ Karim Morani, and Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt. Ltd. directors Asif Balwa and Rajeev B. Agarwal.
On May 20, Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar were named co-accused and sent to judicial custody. Ten days later Morani also joined them in jail.
