New Delhi: Former Telecom Minister A Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi and 17 other accused were today summoned to appear on May 26 by a Delhi court which took cognisance of the charge sheet filed in connection with a money laundering case related to 2G scam by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Special CBI Judge O P Saini asked all the accused, including DMK supremo M Karunanidhi's wife Dayalu Ammal, to appear before it, saying there is “enough incriminating material” on record to proceed against them.
“I have carefully considered the submissions made at the bar in the light of the material on record. Since the complaint has been filed by a public servant, there is no need to examine him.
“On perusal of the material on record, I am satisfied that there is enough incriminating material on record to proceed against the accused persons. Accordingly, I take cognisance of the case,” the judge said, adding, “Issue summons to the accused for May 26.”
ED had filed its charge sheet against 19 accused, including 10 individuals and nine companies, on April 25 in the money laundering case.
