Karunanidhi's daughter drawn into 2G scandal

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday named five more people, including Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi, as the co-accused in the case involving the awarding of second generation (2G) phone spectrum.

The supplementary charge sheet, the second thus far, filed by the agency in a special court here also names Sharad Kumar of Kalaignar TV, Karim Morani of Cineyug Films, and Asif Balwa and Rajiv B. Agarwal of Kusegaon Realty as co-accused.

Kanimozhi refused to comment on the developments.

Dayalu Ammal, wife of Karunanidhi and stepmother of Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi, does not figure in the charges filed yesterday as speculated by a section of the media.

The CBI had first named as accused former communications minister A. Raja, his personal aide R.K. Chandolia, former telecom secretary Siddhartha Behura and Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Balwa.

Later, five more corporate executives were added to the list of accused Vinod Goenka of Swan Telecom, Sanjay Chandra of Unitech and three officials of the Anil Ambani Group: Gautam Doshi, Hari Nair and Surendra Pipara. All nine are in judicial custody.

The case involves the awarding of telecom spectrum to private players, which the investigative agency says was done in a fraudulent manner.
