Dinakaran sent to jail till May 15


New Delhi, May 1: AIADMK leader T.T.V. Dinakaran, accused of attempting to bribe poll officials to obtain the party’s “two leaves” symbol, was on Monday sent to 14-day judicial custody by a court here.

Special Judge Poonam Chaudhary sent Dinakaran, nephew of jailed AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala, to judicial custody till May 15 over the bribery allegations to obtain the disputed and now frozen party symbol.

Mallikarjuna, a long-time friend of Dinakaran, who was also arrested on April 25, was also remanded to judicial custody for a similar period.

The order came after the Delhi Police told the court that they did not require any further custodial interrogation of the accused persons.
