Sasikala nephew Dinakaran brought to Delhi for police interrogation

Expelled AIADMK deputy general secretary and also Sasikala Natarajan’s nephew, TTV Dinakaran was brought again to the national capital on late Saturday night by the Crime Branch for questioning.

TTV Dinakaran has been facing the heat after allegedly bribing an election commission official to secure the ‘two leaves’ symbol for the Sasikala Natarajan faction ahead of the RK Nagar by-polls which was eventually cancelled amid huge exchange of money for votes.

The Election Commission found out that Rs 89 crore was distributed among the voters by the Dinakaran faction to win the RK Nagar by-election which was to be held due to the untimely death of incumbent MLA and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa.

Taken to Delhi’s Chanakyapuri area for questioning in the bribery case involving crores of rupees, TTV Dinakaran, the former Periyakulam MP is currently under a five-day judicial remand.
