New Delhi: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M
Karunanidhi`s daughter Kanimozhi and Bollywood entrepreneur
Karim Morani may appear tomorrow before a Delhi court in
connection with 2G scam after they were accused of routing and
accepting Rs 200 crores bribe for DMK-run Kalaignar TV.

Kanimozhi(43), a DMK MP, MD of Kalaignar TV Sharad Kumar
and Morani, Director of Cineyug Media and Entertainment Pvt
Ltd, were summoned by the special court which had on April 25
taken cognizance of CBI`s second chargesheet, discussing
their roles in the massive scam.

The chances of high-profile accused landing in jail
are high as Special Judge O P Saini had earlier refused bail
to five corporate honchos of Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu),
Reliance ADAG and Swan Telecom.

Like the DMK MP, corporate leaders -- Sanjay Chandra,
Vinod Goenka, Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair --
were also not arrested by CBI during the investigation.
The court is also likely to hear tomorrow the bail plea
of Asif Balwa, Morani and Rajeev Agarwal.

CBI has also accused Kanimozhi of pursuing "with the
intermediaries and DMK headquarters the matter regarding
reappointment of accused A Raja as Minister of Communications
and Information Technology in 2009".

CBI, in its first chargesheet in the case, said Raja had
conspired with top bureaucrats, including a retired IAS
officer, and corporate honchos to cause a loss of Rs 30,984
crore to the exchequer in the allocation of 2G spectrum.

Besides Raja, eight others and three telecom companies
were named as accused in the first chargesheet.

CBI alleged former Telecom Secretary Siddharth Behura,
Raja`s personal secretary R K Chandolia and other corporate
accused had entered into a conspiracy for manipulating the
procedure for allocation of spectrum to favour Swan Telecom
and Unitech.
