New Delhi: Confining the snare around Sasikala nephew and AIADMK deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran, crime branch of Delhi Police had issued a lookout notice against him. All sea and airports have been on tight security with his details and immigration officials have been directed to alert police if Dhinakaran tries to board a flight.
The police action, which indicates that an arrest could be in the making, comes in wake of inputs that Dhinakaran, a non-resident Indian, might try to flee the country, police said.When contacted, joint commissioner (crime) Praveer Ranjan confirmed the move but refused to share details. A close Dhinakaran aide, who was under surveil lance, had given indications about the Tamil Nadu leader's possible attempt to flee the country , a source said.
FIR has been lodged by Delhi police against Dhinakaran and his alleged associate Sukash alias Sukesh Chandrashekar, which categorically states that the police had information that it was Dhinakaran who had sent the money (around Rs10 crore) to Sukesh.
The FIR says that the matter was likely to come up for hearing before the EC on April 17 and Sukesh had promised Dhinakaran to swing the judgment in his favour. The FIR also details how the entire operation was conducted after inputs were received on April 15.
On Tuesday, officials said that the probe now focused on tracing the missing Rs8.7 crore as only Rs1.3 crore were seized out of the Rs10 crore dispatched by Dhinakaran to Sukesh via Kochi. Sukesh was taken to five places in Delhi on Tuesday to track the movement of cash dispensed by him. Sukesh's 10 days stay in Delhi is under the scanner and a list of 10 people who met him at Hyatt or elsewhere has been prepared. He was using his network of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu bureaucrats to meet officials in EC. He was hosting lavish parties for the officials and middlemen, it is learned.
Two big hawala operators of Delhi have also been identified and more arrests were likely.
