Jailed Bollywood producer Karim Morani on Friday claimed in a Delhi court that CBI has failed to establish that the alleged trail of Rs 200 crore to DMK-run Kalaignar TV, through his firm Cineyug, was a bribe in lieu of grant of 2G licence.

“The presumption cannot form a basis for his (Morani) prosecution. It cannot be the case that Rs 200 crore was paid as quid pro quo for the grant of UAS (2G) licences,” senior advocate Siddhartha Luthra said.

Morani is accused of “intentionally aiding” the transfer of R200 crore from Shahid Usman Balwa-promoted DB Group as bribe to Kalaignar TV.
