The Chennai high court on Friday issued a notice to Congress party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan, acting on an affidavit seeking direction to probe a Rs 300 crore scam involving her. Natarajan is a Congress Member of Parliament from Tamil Nadu.
The affidavit alleges that Natarajan facilitated a sizeable bank loan from Vijaya Bank by misusing her links with the Union government.
Natarajan is also under legal scrutiny for allegedly owning 688,300 square feet of newly constructed area, along with 40 per cent of a plot sprawling over 15.17 acres on the outskirts of Chennai.
The income accrued from renting out this land is close to Rs 30 crore per annum, the petition added.
