Chennai: Highly placed sources in the Delhi police have revealed that an FIR was filed against TTV Dinakaran, AIADMK leader V K Sasikala’s nephew, following a tipoff from the Chennai unit of the Intelligence Bureau.
This followed the arrest of one Sukesh Chandrasekhar from a New Delhi 5-star hotel on Sunday and the recovery of Rs 1.30 crore and a BMW and Mercedes cars from him.
According to the Delhi police, Sukesh had struck a deal for Rs 50 crore to secure the ‘Two Leaves’ symbol for the Sasikala faction of the AIADMK.
