Court rejects bail of Kani, 7 others

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Nov 3 � Dashing the hopes of DMK MP Kanimozhi and seven other accused in the 2G case, a Delhi court today dismissed their bail pleas saying the charges levelled against them were of �grave nature�, reports PTI.

The court rejected CBI�s stand of not objecting the bail pleas of Kanimozhi and four others saying its concession was of �no consequence in the eyes of law�.

The CBI stand triggered hopes in the accused that they would now now be able to get bail after the Court had framed charges and the Supreme Court had told the accused that their bail plea could be raised then.

�I may add that such an objection/concession given by the prosecution to the bail plea of an accused is of no consequence in the eyes of law as the bail plea is required to be decided strictly and solely as per the law and facts and circumstances of the case,� Special CBI Judge O P Saini said.

The CBI had preferred not to oppose the bail pleas of Kanimozhi, Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar, Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables directors Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal and Bollywood filmmaker Karim Morani, whose names had figured in the supplementary charge sheet filed on April 25.

The accused have been in the jail for last five to nine months. Kanimozhi had been in jail since May 20.
