Raja and Kanimozhi, daughter of DMK supremo M Karunanidhi, were also let off in another case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate under the money laundering law arising out of the 2G scam in which Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal was also named as an accused.

It was alleged in this case that Rs 200 crore was paid by Swan Telecom (P) Ltd promoters to the DMK-run Kalaignar TV.
