New Delhi: The fate of DMK MP Kanimozhi, charge sheeted by the CBI for her alleged role in the 2G spectrum case along with former telecom minister A. Raja, is to be decided on Friday by a Delhi court.

Special CBI Judge O. P. Saini, exclusively trying the 2G case, is to pronounce his order on her bail plea along with that of Kalaignar TV managing director Sharad Kumar at or after 1 pm.

The court earlier had reserved its order on their bail pleas for 14 May, but on that day, it had postponed it till 20 May.

The 43-year-old daughter of DMK chief M. Karunanidhi and Kumar have been charge sheeted by CBI for allegedly conspiring with Raja, the key accused in the case.

She has been charged under the Prevention of Corruption Act for taking bribe through Kalaignar TV -- a channel run by DMK -- in which a sum of Rs200 crore was routed from Shahid Usman Balwa’s firm DB Realty.

Kanimozhi and Kumar hold 20% stakes each in Kalaignar TV while former Tamil Nadu chief minister Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal holds 60% share in it.
