The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday filed a case of money laundering against arrested AIADMK leader T.T.V. Dinakaran, accused of attempting to bribe Election Commission officials to get the “two leaves” symbol for the V.K. Sasikala faction.
According to sources, a case was registered against Dinakaran under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after taking cognisance of a Delhi Police FIR. On Monday, Dinakaran was sent to 14 days judicial custody by a court here.
Dinakaran is accused of trying to obtain a favourable verdict from the poll panel so that the now frozen “two leaves” party symbol could be restored to the AIADMK. He was arrested by the Delhi Police Crime Branch on April 25 for trying to pay Rs 50 crore in bribes to poll officials through middleman Sukesh Chandrashekar.
