In a setback to former communications minister Dayanidhi Maran, the Madras High Court on Monday cancelled his anticipatory bail and asked him to surrender before the CBI in three days.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a petition seeking to cancel the anticipatory bail granted to Maran on grounds that the DMK leader did not cooperate with the investigation.
The court accepted CBI’s argument and cancelled the bail granted earlier.
The CBI case relates to the installation of over 300 high speed data lines at his Boat Club Road residence to benefit Sun TV group promoted by his elder brother Kalanithi Maran.
The CBI latter said the number of phone lines installed is over 700 at his Boat Club Road residence and another residence in Delhi.
