2G scam: Cineyug's Morani appears in court, moves bail plea

May 24, 2011 11:36 IST
Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd Director Karim Morani, an accused in the 2G spectrum case, appeared before a Delhi court on Tuesday and filed his regular bail application.

Special Central Bureau of Investigation Judge O P Saini took Morani's bail plea into record and listed the matter for arguments on May 26. The court has on Monday dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Morani and had directed him to appear before it. It had said that "coercive process" would be applied if Morani fails to appear before it on Tuesday.

The court is likely to pronounce its order on the bail plea of Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa and director of Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd-- Asif Balwa and Rajeev Agarwal later in the day.

The court had earlier dismissed Morani's anticipatory bail plea on medical ground, saying that as per May 19 reports received from the department of cardiology and neurosurgery of Mumbai's JJ Hospital, his condition is "stable and normal".

The court had also said that proper medical facilities are available in Tihar Jail itself and if an undertrial or a prisoner requires any further treatment, he is immediately taken to RML Hospital or All India Institute of Medical Sciences, as per the requirement of the situation.
