The CBI had Wednesday conducted searches in Chennai, Delhi, Coimbatore, Perambalur and Trichy in the disproportionate assets case.
Andimuthu Raja, former telecom minister, is already facing CBI investigations in the infamous 2G telecom spectrum allocation case in which trial is going on.
Public Prosecutor Anand Grover making his submissions stated that a conspiracy was hatched by Raja and other accused and Rs 200 crore was the “proceed of crime”.
This is the second case in the 2G spectrum allocation scam in which Raja, Kanimozhi and others are facing trial for their alleged involvement.
Grover also argued that Raja had changed the cut-off date for receiving applications for grant of 2G licences.
If convicted of the charges against them, Raja and others will face a maximum sentence of up to seven years.
Aseervatham Achary deposed before the court that Kanimozhi used to visit Raja’s residential office and used to be widely covered in news bulletins of KTV.
Court deferred the case after counsel for CBI and the accused sought more time.
ED, in its charge sheet, had alleged that the accused were involved in a Rs 200-crore money transaction.
Grover also told the court that the complaint filed by ED and documents annexed along with the charge sheet prima facie show that it was not a genuine business transaction.
The offences entail punishment ranging from six months in jail to life imprisonment.
They have been charged with money laundering a bribe of Rs 200 crore in telecom scam.
Raja and others, including Behura and Chandolia, are facing trial in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case.
Raja also denied CBI’s suggestions that he had written a letter toPM to avoid reference of the matter to EGoM.
Testifying as a witness in the ongoing trial in 2G spectrum allocation case, Raja told the court that he had held many discussions with the then PM and had explained to him framework governing issuance of licences.
