Inviting more trouble for Tamil Nadu’s All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), the Delhi police on Monday filed a First Information Report (FIR) against party general secretary TTV Dinakaran for allegedly bribing the Election Commission for the two leaves symbol for his party.
“Neither of the two groups shall be permitted to use the symbol ‘Two Leaves’ of the AIADMK,” the Election Commission stated.
The poll panel also asked both the factions to choose a new symbol to contest the by-polls in R K Nagar. The ECT also allowed both factions a further and final opportunity of adducing documents and affidavits latest by April 17.
Earlier, Egmore magistrate court headed by Judge Malarmathi ordered the Dinakaran to appear for questions in connection with the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) case against him on April 18 and 19.
The Madras High Court refused to defer Dinakaran’s trial in a money laundering-cum-foreign exchange violation case till April 12.
