kanimozhi sent to Tihar jailChennai: The DMK under M. Karunanidhi was washed out state elections recently due to the lakhs of crores of rupees lost by GOI through A Raja (former minister) who is now in jail. But on Friday, there was an after-shock of the election results that sent DMK to doom, and that was affected when Karunanidhi (84) daughter, Kanimozi (43), Rajya Sabha MP, was arrested for over Rs.200 crores taken by her TV channel, Kalaignar TV, as bribe from another company.
She had pleaded innocence, even returned the money, but the court still treated her as guilty. Her plea for bailment, along with that of Sharad Kumar, MD of Kalaignar TV, was rejected at the Patial House Special (CBI) Court, which ordered her immediate arrest. The order was signed by Judge O.P Saini on Friday. He asked them to be produced in the court on Saturday morning at 10am.
It may be noted that Kanimozhi had 20% shares but was a director of the TV channel along with 2 others, CBI had charge-sheeted her on April 25. Presently A.Raja, his associates Shahid Balwa and 5 other businessmen are cooling their heels in Tohar jail. Now both Kanimozhi and her associate Sharad Kumar are in CBI custody, and sent to Tihar jail as political/economic prisoners.
