Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam Member of Parliament Kanimozhi on Thursday said her party will come out clean in the Central Bureau of Investigation's probe into the 2G spectrum issue and voiced confidence that the party's ties with the Congress will not come under strain on the issue.

"The law has to take its own course. It is a process to prove us not guilty. Definitely we will come out clean," Kanimozhi, who is the daughter of DMK chief M Karunanidhi, told reporters, a day after the Central Bureau of Investigation conducted raids against her associates and those close to ex-telecom minister A Raja.

Asserting that the DMK was open to the ongoing probe, she denied any strain in ties with the Congress party.

"No strains at all. I am sure together we will prove that nothing wrong is going on," she said while replying to a question on whether the developments had affected ties with the Congress.

Kanimozhi denied allegations that her mother Rajathi Ammal owned Royal Enterprises, a furniture mart, which had purchased prime land on arterial Anna Road, saying "The property was owned by a private party and not by Tatas".

"One former employee of the furniture mart, Saravanan, acted as an intermediary and the property was sold to a Malaysian businessman. My family has no connection with the deal," she said.

In a crackdown on Wednesday as part of the 2G spectrum scam probe, the CBI searched 34 offices and residences of corporate lobbyist Nira Radia, former Telecom Regulatory Authority of India Chairman Pradip Baijal, siblings of Raja and an NGO linked to Kanimozhi and claimed to have recovered several incriminating documents.

The premises of Kamaraj, associate editor of Tamil magazine 'Nakkeran' in Chennai, Raja's brother and sister near Tiruchirappalli and Tamil Maiyam and an NGO in which Kanimozhi is on the board of directors were among those searched.

The investigating agency also swooped down on the premises of Raja's auditor Subramanyam and the auditor of Kanimozhi's mother.
