Kanimozhi opposes additional charge in 2G scam
Kanimozhi, who is in jail since May 20 after her bail plea was dismissed in the case, said the charge sheet "did not contain a word" that she conspired or played a role in alleged "dishonest disposal" of public property (spectrum). "Other lawyers have already argued that spectrum was not the property which can be disposed off and it cannot be entrusted to others. My case is that I was not involved at all," Ahmed said.
CBI has sought framing of charges of criminal breach of trust against former Telecom Minister A Raja and others. If convicted, they may face life imprisonment as maximum penalty. It also sought to try rest 14 accused, including Kanimozhi under same penal provision by making them a party to conspiracy allegedly hatched by Raja and two other public servants.
CBI, in its plea, said Raja and two government servants had a dominion over valuable 2G spectrum in their respective capacities as public servants and they flouted law in award of licenses, which made out a case of criminal breach of trust.
