The Supreme Court has finished hearing the arguments on Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi’s bail plea in the 2G scam case. It reserved the order for 12:30 pm.
Kanimozhi’s main argument in the case has been that she is a woman and the primary care-giver to a 10-year-old child.
On Legal grounds, she has argued that since she holds only 20% of the equity of Kalaignar TV — started after the fight between the Marans (of Sun TV) and Karunanidhi) — she cannot be held responsible for its actions. Under the law, minority shareholders are not assumed to be in the knowledge about everything that their company does, she argued.
Kanimozhi’s bail has been previously rejected by the Delhi High Court as well as by the Court actually trying her for the alleged conspiracy and corruption at the Patiala House in Delhi. Both Courts dismissed her appeals pointing out that the allegations are too serious and keeping in mind the possibility that she may influence witnesses, if let out.
