“Serious allegation has been raised of custodial violence which cannot be tolerated at all,” the court said and listed the matter for hearing on August 22.
Recently the Delhi Police Crime Branch has filed an over 700-page charge sheet alleging that Dhinakaran and Chandrashekar, who was arrested on April 16, had conspired to bribe the Election Commission (EC) officials to get the ‘two leaves’ symbol for the party.
The police had also told the trial court that a supplementary final report would be filed later against other accused — Dhinakaran’s close aide T P Mallikarjuna, suspected hawala operators Nathu Singh and Lalit Kumar — who are out on bail, after completing the probe against them.
Chandrashekar was arrested for allegedly taking money from Dhinakaran to bribe ECI officials to get the AIADMK’s ‘two leaves’ symbol for the Sasikala faction.
According to the police, they had allegedly recovered cash worth Rs 1.3 crore from him at the time of the raid at a hotel in Chanakyapuri area of South Delhi.
