DMK chief M Karunanidhi is "very upset" over rejection of bail to his daughter and party MP Kanimozhi in the 2G spectrum case.

"Karunanidhi was hoping that Kanimozhi would be given bail as the CBI has not opposed her bail plea. He is very upset and had not spoken to anybody, including family members after he came to know of the dismissal of the bail application today," sources close to Karunanidhi said.

Noting that the charges levelled against Kanimozhi and seven others in the case were of "very serious nature", a Delhi court dismissed their bail pleas.

The others whose bail petitions were dismissed were former telecom minister A Raja's erstwhile private secretary RK Chandolia, Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa, Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar, Kusegaon Fruits & Vegetables directors Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal and Bollywood filmmaker Karim Morani.
