Delhi Police on Friday detained a Delhi-based Hawala operator at the airport in connection with TTV Dhinakaran 'Two leaves' symbol bribery case. The Hawala operator Naresh was coming from Thailand. He had arranged Rs 10 crore for Sukesh from Kochi-based Hawala operator.
Earlier on Thursday, AIADMK (Amma) leader T T V Dhinakaran, arrested by the Delhi Police in connection with a bribery case, was brought to Chennai and searches were conducted at his residence in the city as part of the probe.
Delhi Crime Branch police personnel led by Assistant Commissioner Sanjay Sherawat searched the residences of Dhinakaran and that of his associate Mallikarjuna, police sources said tonight.
The police had secured warrants from a Delhi court to conduct the searches which were part of efforts to gather “further evidence” in the alleged attempt by Dhinakaran to bribe EC officials, they said.
However, they did not state whether any seizures were made.
Besides the two, others connected to them were also questioned over illegal channels and conduits used for sending money to Delhi from here, the sources said.
