Middleman charged, not Dhinakaran
The Delhi Police on Friday filed a chargesheet against a suspected middleman in the Election Commission bribery case, but omitted the name of AIADMK leader T T V Dhinakaran.

The police said they would name Dhinakaran, who is accused of seeking “middleman” Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s help in securing the two-leaf symbol for his faction, in a supplementary chargesheet after completing the probe against him.

The chargesheet was filed against Chandrasekhar, who was arrested on April 16 and was denied bail repeatedly by the local court and Delhi High Court. Chandrasekhar is facing charges of forgery of valuable security, forgery for purpose of cheating, using forged document as genuine and possessing a forged document and intending to use it as genuine.

Investigators had earlier said that Dhinakaran, who along with an aide Mallikarjun was arrested on April 25, arranged money from undisclosed sources and used illegal channels to transfer the funds from Chennai to Delhi for Chandrasekhar.

He reportedly struck a Rs 50-crore deal with Chandrasekhar to ensure that his faction got the AIADMK’s original symbol.

Chandrasekhar had reportedly promised Dhinakaran that he would help him get the symbol. It is said the police had recovered Rs 1.3 crore in cash from him during a raid at a hotel.
