2G: Court reserves order on Morani`s bail plea

A Delhi court Thursday reserved its order on the bail plea of Cineyug Films Director Karim Morani, an accused in the 2G spectrum case.

New Delhi: A Delhi court Thursday reserved
its order on the bail plea of Cineyug Films Director Karim Morani, an accused in the 2G spectrum case.

"Put up for order for May 30," Special CBI Judge O P
Saini said.

During the arguments on bail, CBI prosecutor A K Singh
said that Morani facilitated the transaction of Rs 200 crore
from DB Realty to Kalaignar TV, in which DMK MP Kanimozhi
holds 20 per cent stake.

The CBI said Morani took six crore for facilitating this Rs 200 crore transaction.

Senior Advocate Sidharth Luthra, appearing for Morani,
submitted that the CBI should not oppose the bail plea of his
client as they had not arrested him during the investigation
of the case.

He said that Morani has no links with the public
servants who are among the accused in the case.
Morani had filed his regular bail plea on May 24 after
the court had denied anticipatory bail and directed him to
appear before it.
CBI, in its second charge sheet in 2G case, had
alleged Swan Telecom and Dynamix Realty Promoters Shahid Usman
Balwa and Vinod Goenka channeled Rs 200 crore to DMK-run
Kalaignar TV through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd
and Morani`s Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd.

The court had earlier dismissed Morani`s anticipatory
bail plea on medical ground, saying that as per May 19 reports
received from the department of Cardiology and Neurosurgery of
Mumbai`s J J Hospital, his condition is "stable and normal".
