NEW DELHI: DMK MP Kanimozhi, facing trial for her alleged role in the 2G spectrum allocation case, was on Monday allowed by a Delhi court to participate in the ongoing Budget Session of Parliament.

Special CBI Judge OP Saini allowed Kanimozhi's plea to attend the session after the CBI did not oppose it.

The court permitted her subject to the condition that her counsel should "actually participate" in the judicial proceedings.

Kanimozhi was granted bail on November 28 last year by the Delhi High Court after she had spent over six months in Tihar jail following her arrest on May 20, 2011.

"It is submitted by Kanimozhi that she is a member of the Rajya Sabha and Budget Session of Parliament is commencing from today and she may be allowed to attend the same to which senior public prosecutor (of the CBI) has no objection.

"She is permitted to attend the session subject to the condition that her identity shall not be disputed and her counsel shall remain present in the court for participating in the court proceedings and shall actually participate in the court proceedings," the special judge said.

Kanimozhi, along with former Telecom Minister A Raja and others, including three telecom firms, are facing trial in the case.

During the day's proceeding, the court also recorded the statement of prosecution witness Mumbai's Deputy Registrar of Companies (RoC) Rajender Singh Meena.
