Delhi Police Bring Dinakaran to Chennai; Secure Warrants to Search his House
Chennai: The twists and turns in an alleged bribery case brought TTV Dinakaran back to Chennai. The Delhi Crime Branch arrested him in Delhi two days ago after questioning him.
The AIADMK (Amma) leader was brought to Chennai in connection with cash for symbol scam by Delhi police.
The Delhi Police, which was probing the case, brought Dinakaran and his friend Mallikharjuna by flight to search their residences. The Delhi Police secured the necessary warrants for carrying out the searches.
It was alleged that Dinakaran was trying to bribe an Election Commission official to secure the official ‘two leaves’ symbol for his faction. It is learnt that he had told some of the MLAs that he might get things done.
However, the Delhi Police on a tip off about the deal arrested Sukhesh Chandrasekhar at a five-star hotel in Delhi on April 16. At the time of arrest, Sukhesh was carrying Rs. 1.30 crores.
After questioning Sukhesh, the Delhi Police, who initially asked Dinakaran to join the enquiry, arrested him after four days.
The allegation was that Dinakaran arranged the amount from undisclosed sources and got it transferred illegally from Chennai to Delhi. And his aide Mallikharjuna was arrested for helping him in the process.
