The income tax department raided the premises of Jaya TV and Dr. Namadhu MGR, a Tamil newspaper, here this morning.

Officers have reportedly been checking the office of a Tamil daily Namadhu MGR and Jaya TV network. In all, simultaneous raids have been underway in more than 150 locations in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana and Delhi.

Jaya TV was started by former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

The sleuths also carried out raids on the house of one Sajivan, who supplied wood and interiors to the Kodanadu bungalow in Kotagiri belonging to late Jayalalithaa, they said. He alleged that the raids are part of the Centre's tactics to get him and jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala out of the AIADMK party.

MP R Vaithilingam, a key member of the ruling AIADMK group led by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami said, 'there is no relationship between today's raids and the issue of retrieving Two Leaves symbol.
