NEW DELHI: A special court on Monday fixed October 31 for passing its order on framing of charges in a 2G scam-related money laundering case, in which the ED had chargesheeted ex-Telecom Minister A Raja, MP Kanimozhi, DMK Supremo Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal and 16 others. Special CBI Judge O P Saini, who was scheduled to pass the order on framing of charges on Monday, deferred it till October 31, saying the order was not yet ready.

The ED, in its chargesheet against the 19 accused, including 10 individuals and nine companies, had alleged they were involved in the `200-crore money transaction which was not “bona fide and genuine and it was ‘a bribe for grant of telecom licences to DB Group of companies by Raja”.

The ED had claimed that transactions relating to the transfer of `200 crore from the DB Group company, to DMK-run Kalaignar TV, through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd and Cineyug Films Pvt Ltd were not genuine. The accused, however, had countered the claims of the ED, contending there was no evidence to support the allegations.

The counsel appearing for Raja and Kanimozhi had argued in the court that the documents filed along with the ED’s complaint nowhere showed that they were connected with the `200-crore transaction from the DB group to Kalaignar TV.
