The police also confirmed that the money recovered from Chandrashekhar was allegedly being used to pay a bribe to the ECI and a total of Rs50 crore was involved in the whole process. An alleged middleman Sukesh Chandrasekhar was arrested from the Hyatt hotel on Sunday night. He has been booked by Delhi Police under IPC sections 170, 120b and 8 PoC. "I haven't bribed anyone for anything", Dinakaran said.
In a petition submitted to Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi in New Delhi, the Sasikala camp said it would not be able to submit affidavits before April 17, the deadline set by the poll body, to reinforce their claims on the party symbol that still holds sway over people in Tamil Nadu. The police then dropped a bombshell, saying, "Sukesh had struck a deal for Rs 50 crore for helping the AIADMK faction keep the "two leaves" symbol".
The police said there was no evidence yet to indict EC officials.
However, Dinakaran denied having any links with Chadrashekhar, adding that he would look into it if the Delhi police summons him in the matter.Читайте также: Real Madrid grab dramatic late win over Sporting Gijon
The arrest and the announcement by the Delhi police came just as the EC was getting ready to hear the two factions over their claim to the "Two Leaves" symbol after the deadline to submit all supporting evidence expired today. "I don't know anybody by this name, Sukesh Chandrasekhar".
Dinakaran is considered a close ally of Sasikala, who is now incarcerated at Parappana Agrahara Central Prison after she was found guilty in a disproportionate assets case.
Coming after the cancellation of the crucial RK Nagar bypoll, reportedly on charges of voter bribery, voices against Sasikala and Dinakaran have gathered steam and could drive more MLAs and ministers to the opposing AIADMK faction led by former chief minister O Panneerselvam (OPS).При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
