The former Telecom Minister, Dayanidhi Maran, his brother, Kalanidhi Maran, and the latter’s wife Kaveri Maran on Monday moved a Delhi court seeking bail in the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case.

Special Judge O.P. Saini posted their applications for hearing on July 21. The court summoned them and another accused in February for July 11.

While taking cognisance of the complaint in the matter filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), 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 some Mauritius-based firms and that the two firms were then allegedly controlled by Mr. Kalanithi Maran.

The CBI had filed charge sheets against the Maran brothers, two Malaysian nationals and four companies in the case in August 2014.
