The Delhi High Court on Tuesday sought the CBI’s reply to DMK MP Kanimozhi’s plea for quashing of various criminal and corruption charges framed by the trial court against her in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

Justice M L Mehta issued notice to the probe agency and fixed the matter for further hearing on May 10.

Kanimozhi,in her plea,had claimed she was falsely implicated in the case and had contended there was no evidence on record to justify the charge that she received bribe.

The 44-year-old DMK leader,who got bail after spending over six months in Tihar Jail,had also sought setting aside of all proceedings which ensued after framing of charges.

She has challenged the trial court’s order framing charges against her contending that it was based on “wrong and misplaced understanding of the law on conspiracy”.
