Chennai: Top DMK leaders went into a huddle at the residence of party chief M Karunanidhi in the wake of a Delhi Court rejecting the bail plea of his daughter Kanimozhi in the 2G spectrum case on Friday.

Senior leaders rushed to the CIT Colony residence of Karunanidhi and Kanimozhi soon after the news broke out about the court verdict.

Karunanidhi was glued to the TV to know about the latest on the fate of his daughter, who is set to be arrested by CBI, and was ‘apparently’ upset after the rejection of the bail plea, party sources said.

The next course of action of DMK, a key ally of UPA, was not immediately known.

Putting up a strong defence of Kanimozhi when she was named in the chargesheet as a co-conspirator along with former Telecom Minister A Raja, the DMK had said it would fight the case legally.
