Karunanidhi meets Kanimozhi in Tihar jail
New Delhi: DMK chief M Karunanidhi met
his daughter Kanimozhi, arrested in 2G spectrum allocation
case, in Delhi's Tihar Jail on Sunday evening.
Karunanidhi, accompanied by his wife Rajathi Ammal, and
DMK leader T R Balu drove into the Tihar premises in a car
which entered through Gate number 3 at around 4.45 pm.
This is the third time, Karunanidhi met his daughter
since she was lodged in the Tihar prison on May 21.
A Delhi court today found prima facie evidence against
Kanimozhi and 16 others and framed charges against them in the
2G spectrum allocation scam case.
"The meeting lasted for over half an hour. They left
at 5.30 pm. They had sought permission today morning to meet
Kanimozhi who is lodged in the women's cell in jail number 6.
Though three people had requested to meet but only Karunanidhi
and his wife Rajathi Ammal met her," Deputy Inspector General,
Tihar prisons, R N Sharma said.
"They met at the entrance of the jail as Karunanidhi
is wheel-chair bound," Sharma added.
Another jail official with Jail number 6 said "she has
never cried in any of her meetings with her parents. She gets
disturbed when she reads reports in the newspaper stating that
she cried while meeting her relatives in jail. She has the
maximum number of visitors in the jail and her husband G
Aravinthan frequently visits her."
