Kanimozhi has been named as co-accused along with former Telecom Minister A Raja and has been chargesheeted by the CBI for allegedly accepting Rs 214 crore as bribe that was a part of India's largest swindle, the 2G scam. Her party MP and Dalit leader A Raja is already in Tihar since February, for allegedly planning and executing the 2G scam when he was Telecom Minister in 2008.
Kanimozhi was sent to Tihar after her bail plea was rejected by a special Delhi court on Friday.
In her petition, Kanimozhi has said that no bribe has been received by Kalaignar TV; that Rs 200 crore from Cineyug was only a loan which was repaid.
Among the maze of companies charged in the 2G scam is Cineyug Films and its MD Karim Morani who has been charged by the CBI of abetment to bribery.
The petition also says that all transactions are transparent through bank and denies allegation of strong association with former Telecom Minister A Raja.
She also says that there is no chance of tampering with evidence because all the documents are already in CBI possession.
Kalaignar TV MD Sharath Kumar, who has been accused of conspiring with Mr Raja and is in Tihar Jaisl, also moved the Delhi High Court for bail on the same grounds as quoted by Kanimozhi.
