Kanimozhi, the daughter of DMK Chief M. Karunanidhi and Kumar has challenged the Delhi High Court’s verdict rejecting their bail pleas.
A vacation bench of Justices BS Chauhan and Swatanter Kumar will take up the matter. The HC had on June 8 dismissed their pleas after observing that they have strong political connections and the possibility of them ruling out the witnesses cannot be ruled out.
Kanimozhi and Kumar named as accused in the second charge sheet for allegedly taking bribe of Rs.200 crore, were arrested on May 20 after the special court dismissed their bail pleas. Both of them have 20 per cent stake in the Kalaignar TV Pvt Ltd.
