CBI opposes Kanimozhi's bail plea to SC

The CBI today opposed in the Supreme Court the bail plea of and co-accused Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar in the 2G case on the ground that if released, they could tamper with evidence and influence witnesses.

In an affidavit filed before the apex court, the investigating agency contended that and Kumar were key conspirators and Rs 200 crore transferred to the Kalaignar TV was part of the "bribe" amount and not a loan as claimed by the accused.

The agency said that since investigation in the 2G case is at an advanced stage, it will not be proper for the apex court to grant bail to the accused.

The CBI submitted that the special CBI court and later the Delhi High Court had carefully evaluated various material evidence and other factors to decline bail to them.
