Kanimozhi controls Kalaignar TV: CBI

It also said that Kalaignar TV, which received Rs 200 crore bribe from Dynamix Balwa group, a beneficiary in the scam.

The court reserves order on bail pleas of DMK MP Kanimozhi and others for May 14.

Special public prosecutor U U Lalit told the court that controlling mind of Kalaignar TV is Sharad Kumar but behind the scene the person who is controlling everything in Kalaignar TV is Kanimozhi herself.

Appearing before Special CBI Judge O P Saini, the CBI further said that Kanimozhi and her family have got majority stake in the TV, which received Rs 200 crore from the company, which got telecom licence and spectrum illegally during the tenure of former Telecom Minister A Raja. CBI pleads in the court for sending Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar to judicial custody.

Kanimozhi, the daughter of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, appeared before the court along with Sharad Kumar.
It said that DMK Chief Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal holds 60 per cent stake in the company but she is not actively involved in its running which is done by Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar.
“If a family holds 80 per cent share in a company, it is impossible to think that anyone other than members of that family could run the company,” Lalit said.
Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar personally appeared in the court in compliance with the Special Judge’s order issuing summons to them after they were chargesheeted by the CBI for their alleges involvement in the multi-crore scam.
Noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani, appearing for the MP, had on Friday refuted the entire allegation leveled against her and passed the blame on the scandal to former Telecom Minister A Raja, who is also a party leader.
Jethmalani also pleaded with the judge to grant her bail on the ground that she was a woman.
“My misfortune is that I am Karunanidhi’s daughter and an MP. I have 20 per cent shares in Kalaignar TV. Show me one overt act of mine which relates to the offence,” Kanimozhi had submitted.
