New Delhi, April 19, 2017: Ruling AIADMK’s Amma faction leader TTV Dhinakaran today called for a meeting of MLAs and District Secretaries at the party headquarters in Royapettah this afternoon at 3 pm.

This comes after Tamil Nadu Finance Minister D. Jayakumar yesterday announced that ministers have decided to keep out jailed AIADMK leader V.K. Sasikala, her nephew T.T.V. Dinakaran and his family out of the party.

Jayakumar also asserted that committee will be formed to run the party when queried about the General Secretary’s position.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police has issued a lookout notice against Dhinakaran, accused of bribing a middleman to get AIADMK’s two leaves symbol allotted to his faction.

Officials have alerted all sea and airports with Dinakaran’s details to ensure he doesn’t leave the country. Immigration officials have also been instructed to alert police if Dhinakaran tries boarding a flight.

The action comes in the wake of inputs that Dhinakaran was an NRI and could try to flee, police said.

The rival O. Panneerselvam camp is also meeting separately here to discuss the future course of action, sources in the faction said.

Yesterday, demanding the ouster of Sasikala and her nephew from the AIADMK, former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam said the party should not be controlled by one family, adding it was nothing short of treason to allow the former to control the party’s affairs.

He said that he had sent a petition to the Election Commission to declare Sasikala’s appointment as AIADMK general secretary ‘illegal.

New Delhi, Feb 21:  Delhi police on Wednesday arrested AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan in Delhi Chief Secretary alleged assault case. He would be produced before Delhi’s Tis Hazari court.

Earlier today the MLA Amanatullah Khan reached Jamia Nagar Police Station, says that he has come to surrender. He  also added that ‘I have not done anything wrong.’

Delhi Police has detained the AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan at Jamia Nagar Police Station in connection with the investigation of the case.

The police today also questioned V.K. Jain, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s advisor in connection with an alleged assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two AAP MLAs.

This comes just hours after AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal was arrested by the police on Tuesday night in connection with the alleged assault.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, Harendra Kumar Singh told IANS that Jain was being questioned at the Civil Lines Police Station.

On Tuesday, Prakash had alleged that he was beaten up by Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan and his colleague in front of Kejriwal at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday midnight, where he was called for a meeting.

The Chief Minister’s advisor was present at the time of the incident, according to Prakash’s police complaint.

The Additional DCP said police were also trying to track down Khan. They had been to Khan’s residence to detain him on Tuesday night, but the AAP MLA from Okhla was not present.

The allegation of the assault triggered a political storm in the national capital a day ago with the BJP demanding Kejriwal’s resignation and the Congress asking for the AAP chief’s apology.

The AAP hit back by stating that the Chief Secretary was making false allegations and said he was working at the “behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)”.

The Home Ministry sought a report from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on the issue and Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he was “deeply pained” by the development.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday afternoon, Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain was manhandled by a crowd which gathered outside the door of a lift inside the Delhi Secretariat. Hussain’s Assistant Personal Secretary was beaten up, according to multiple video clips from the Secretariat.
