Massive tax raids at Sasikala-Dinakaran kin, associates, premises (Third Lead)

Operation Clean Money: IT raids Jaya TV premises, properties of TTV Dhinakaran

Apart from the office, IT officials are also searching Sasikala's nephew Vivek Jayaraman residence in Chennai and Jazz Cinemas, which is also owned by her family.

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

As per sources, following reports of tax evasion, the raids were being conducted since 6 a.m.

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 Sasikala-Dhinakaran faction of AIADMK has questioned the timing of the raid especially considering the merged OPS-EPS camp of the AIADMk does not have the majority. "The Central government has sent the I-T department after me".

Dinakaran, replacing Food Minister R. Kamaraj, recently.

Dinakaran dubbed the raids "politically motivated" and said he will not be frightened by such actions of the Centre, adding that the officials knocked at their door when his wife was preparing for cow "puja".

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.

"It's not about TV alone, but shell companies", an I-T official said.
