New Delhi: Hours after they were arrested
in 2G case and taken to Tihar Jail, five corporate executives,
named as accused by the CBI in the 2G scam, on Wednesday moved the
Delhi High Court, challenging the trial court`s refusal to
grant them bail.

The bail applications of Swan Telecom Director Vinod
Goenka, Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Ltd Managing Director
Sanjay Chandra, and three top officials of Reliance ADA Group
-- Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara and Hari Nair -- were
mentioned before a bench of justices Vikramajit Sen and
Siddharth Mridul.

The bench decided to take up their appeal against the
grant of bail tomorrow. Senior advocates KTS Tulsi and NK
Kaul mentioned the bail applications on behalf of the five
accused.

Earlier, Special judge OP Saini rejected the bail
pleas of the five corporate honchos and directed that they be
sent to judicial custody.
