The ousted AIADMK leader, TTV Dinkaran, along with his close friend, Mallikarjuna, today, were sent to a judicial custody until May 15.
The Delhi Crime Branch, on Sunday, recovered Dinakaran’s five bank accounts from Chennai. Huge amounts of transactions were made through these bank accounts. After the discovery of the accounts, the Police sought for further remand of the AIADMK leader.
Most of the amounts were paid to a Hawala operator, says sources. The crime branch also called Dinakaran’s Chartered Accountant, for questioning in the matter. The Crime Branch officials, also recovered mobile phone of the middle man, Sukesh Chandrashekar from Chennai, and also found the communication details between Sukesh and Dinakaran.
The Delhi High Court, earlier on Friday, sent the alleged middleman to judicial custody till May 12. Through Chandrashekhar, the AIADMK leader, reportedly sought to keep the the “Two Leaves” symbol of the AIADMK by allegedly trying to bribe an Election Commission official. Approximately, Rs. 1.3 crore, two luxury cars, a BMW and a Mercedes were recovered by the Crime Branch from Chandrasekhar. The middle man, was picked up from a five star hotel, Hyatt, and was produced at the residence of Special Judge Poonam Chaudhry. The Special Judge, allowed the plea of the Delhi Police, to interrogate the accused for eight days.
During his third day of interrogation, by the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police yesterday, Dinakaran, finally accepted that he met Chandrashekhar, who is the accused in the bribery dealing with the Election Commission. Initially, Dinakaran, refused to have known Sukesh, says sources. He later accepted meeting him when Sukesh himself gave the details of his meeting with Dinakaran. The AIADMK leader, however, maintained that he did not pay any money to Sukesh.
