All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) general secretary TTV Dinakaran was on Monday named accused in FIR filed by the Delhi Police crime branch for allegedly offering bribe for his party’s ‘Two leaves’ symbol, sources said.
Dinakaran’s faction contested on the hat symbol after the Election Commission froze their two leaves symbol acknowledging the split in the party.
The police action came in the wake of arrest of an alleged middleman named Sukesh Chandrasekhar from Hyatt Hotel on Sunday night.
The Delhi Police’s case against Dinakaran comes even as a major crisis looms in the state government with a section of ministers revolting against him and seeking his resignation as party deputy general secretary. -Agencies
