New Delhi, Aug 1 (ANI): A Central Bureu of Investigation (CBI) will hear the bail plea filed by the Maran brothers in connection with the Aircel-Maxis case today.

Former communication minister, Dayanidhi Maran, his wife, Kaveri Kalanithi, his brother Kalanithi Maran and four others had moved a CBI special court seeking bail in connection with the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case.

Special Judge O.P. Saini, earlier on July 11, adjourned the hearing after counsel for the Enforcement Directorate, N.K. Matta, and sought time to file replies to their bail applications.

While taking cognisance of the complaint in the case, the Judge had said that he was satisfied on perusal of the material on record and that there was enough material to proceed against the accused persons.

The ED has alleged that two firms, South Asia FM Limited (SAFL) and Sun Direct TV Private Ltd. (SDTPL), had received Rs. 742.58 crore as "proceeds of crime" from Mauritius-based firms and that the two firms were then allegedly controlled by Kalanithi Maran. (ANI)
