According to sources, the action against Gangadhariah, an Assistant Director of Town Planning (ADTP) at the BBMP, was led by one Superintendent of Police (SP), two Deputy Superintendents of Police, and an inspector.
Meanwhile, Income Tax sleuths began searching in more than 50 locations on Monday in connection with G Square Realtors, a private firm thought to be highly close to Tamil Nadu’s government Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK).
Income tax sleuths are also conducting raids and searches at Stalin’s son-in-law Sabareesan’s auditor’s residence. K. Annamalai, the Tamil Nadu BJP president, revealed the ‘DMK files’ a few days ago, alleging that Stalin’s son and current Minister, Udayanidhi Stalin, and his son-in-law Sabareesan, earned far more than their recognized sources of income. .
There were allegations that when Stalin was Deputy Chief Minister in his father Karunanidhi’s Cabinet, G-Square had unhindered support. Annamalai has claimed that his charges of money swindling were made not just under the current DMK government, but also throughout M. Karunanidhi’s tenure.
