AIADMK Leader TTV Dinakaran Files Bail Petition In Delhi Court April 26, 2017 17:11

The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leader TTV Dinakaran, who was recently ousted from the party, has filed a bail petition before a Tis Hazari Court in Delhi. The Delhi police, in the court, sought seven-day police custody for Dinakaran and submitted that the AIADMK leader would be taken to Chennai, Kochi and Bengaluru for investigation. This move comes after Dinakaran was arrested by the Delhi Police, yesterday night, on allegations of trying to bribe an Election Commission (EC) official to get the ownership of the “Two Leaves” symbol of the AIADMK. After four days of questioning, the Delhi police, finally arrested Dinakaran in the bribery case. Besides Dinakaran, his close friend, Mallikarjuna was also arrested under IPC Section 170- Personating a public servant, and Section 120 B- Punishment of criminal conspiracy. Earlier, today, both of them were made to undergo a medical test. During his fourth day of interrogation by the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police, Dinakaran finally admitted that he met Sukesh Chandrasekar, the middle man who is allegedly involved in the bribery dealing with the EC. Initially, Dinakaran refused to have known Sukesh. The AIADMK leader later admitted meeting him, when Sukesh himself gave the details of his meeting with the former. However, Dinakaran maintained that he did not pay any money to Sukesh. The Crime Branch of Police now has to prove the possible reasons for which the two might have met. For this, they have sought the help of the EC official who helped him dealing with the poll. In addition, searches are also being conducted at the Kochi residence of Sukesh, to track the amount paid to him. Also details of the calls made and received, messages sent and received are also being sought. It is also believed that the Crime Branch is trying to get to the roots of the issue for which a connection is at work, which is run by a higher authority.   Dinakaran, on last Sunday, was cross examined along with his aide Mallikarjuna and Personal Assistant Janardhanan, says sources. They were questioned about the money trail of the alleged bribe. Also the matter of Mallikarjuna accompanying Dinakaran every where, after an FIR was lodged against him, was also brought up during the interrogation. On the first day of interrogation, that happened last Saturday, Dinakaran had to face a series of questions by the Delhi Police in connection with the case. A team of the Delhi Police Crime Branch, last thursday, reached Chennai and issued a notice to the AIADMK leader and asked him to join the investigation. Sukesh was arrested and sent to custody for allegedly striking a deal of Rs 50 crore, to help the Dhinakaran faction obtain the “two leaves” poll symbol. The Crime Branch recovered around Rs 1.3 crore, and two luxury cars, a BMW and a Mercedes, from the middleman. He was picked up from the Hyatt hotel and produced at the the residence of Special Judge Poonam Chaudhry. The Judge allowed the petition of the Delhi Police to interrogate the accused for eight days. Dinakaran was also named as an accused in the FIR, filed by the Delhi Police Crime Branch. AIADMK Leader TTV Dinakaran Arrested By Delhi Police By Supraja
