Day after 7-hour questioning, Dinakaran quizzed again in bribery case

April 23, 2017 17:20 IST

All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader TTV Dhinakaran appeared before the Crime Branch for the second day on Sunday for being questioned on the alleged case of bribing an Election Commission official for retaining the "two leaves" party symbol.

Dinakaran reached the Crime Branch Inter State Cell office in Chanakyapuri around 2 pm. There was heavy security outside the residential compound that houses the office of the Inter State Cell.

On Saturday, he was questioned for close to seven hours in the case.

An Assistant Commissioner of Police rank investigating officer had quizzed Dinakaran, the nephew of jailed AIADMK chief Sasikala.

A senior police official had said that Dinakaran was given a questionnaire concerning the money trail, his association with Sukesh Chandrasekar (the middleman who was arrested) and whether he had met any Election Commission official.

His call logs, WhatsApp messages and SMSes were also examined.
