NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will hear on Wednesday plea by former telecom minister and DMK leader Dayanidhi Maran seeking stay of the cancellation of his anticipatory bail in telephone exchange case by the Madras High Court.
Rejecting plea, High Court says when many undertrials in petty cases are languishing in jail, no concession can be shown as he faces serious charges
The apex court bench headed by Justice T.S. Thakur directed the hearing of matter on Wednesday after senior counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi told the court that Maran has been investigated in the matter twice in 2014 and twice in 2015.
The Madras High Court by an order on Monday cancelled the anticipatory bail that it had granted to Maran in June, saying that he should face interrogation by the CBI.
