CBI likely to file second charge sheet tomorrow
The charge sheet to be filed in the court of Special CBI Judge O P Saini is eagerly awaited as all eyes will be on whether Kanimozhi, DMK chief M Karunanidhi`s daughter and MP, figures in the list of accused after the investigation into the case disclosed that money had travelled from DB Realty to Kalaignar TV.
Kanimozhi, Dayaluammal — Karunanidhi`s wife — and Sharad Kumar, Managing Director of Kalaignar TV, have 20, 60 and 20 per cent shares in the channel respectively.
The CBI had earlier told the court that Rs 200 crore connected with the 2G spectrum scam had travelled from a partnership firm of Swan Telecom Promoter Shahid Usman Balwa to Kalaignar TV Pvt Ltd.
The agency had said the money travelled through a "circuitous route" through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd, a DB group company and Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd.
"Investigations have also revealed that in furtherance of the conspiracy, Dynamix Realty, a partnership firm of DB Realty Ltd and other DB group companies, paid Rs 200 crore to Kalaignar TV Pvt Ltd during December 2008 to August 2009, following a circuitous route through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd and Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd (DB group holds 49 per cent equity in it)," CBI said in its first charge sheet filed on April 2.
Besides, the charge sheet may also throw some light on the role of former telecom minister A Raja`s close aide Sadiq Batcha, Director of the Green House Promoters Pvt Ltd, who died in mysterious circumstances last month.
Names of Asif Balwa, cousin of Shahid Balwa, and Rajeev Agarwal, Directors of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd, who are presently in judicial custody, are also expected in the supplementary charge sheet.
