IT Raids At Jaya TV Office In Chennai

IT Raids At Jaya TV Office In Chennai

The OPS-EPS faction opposes the Sasikala-Dinakaran faction. "It's been orchestrated by the Centre". In nearly all the searches conducted by the department since the demonetisation order came last November, officials of the department had used only department cars.

Jaya TV premises in Chennai and Dhinakaran's farm house were searched as part of 'Operation Clean Money, ' under which premises belonging to ten Income Tax assessee groups were searched, a senior I-T official told PTI here.

On the rationale behind the searches, the official said it was launched after identification of "clusters of shell companies, cash deposits in banks after demonetisation and reliable information of acquisition of benami properties and Financial Intelligence Unit's inputs".

The raids began around 6 am, and according to officials, taking place at more than 180 different locations. It is now being controlled by jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala's family members, led by her nephew Vivek Jayaraman.

Searches were conducted only in the premises of those who held management positions, their associates, confidants or aides, the official said. "These raids have been conducted to further amplify the intra-party disputes of AIADMK". The AIADMK rank and file, led by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, has since split with the Sasikala family and joined hands with the former rebels, led by O Panneerselvam. Raids are also being conducted on Vivek the director of Jaya TV. And the movie theatre business Jazz Cinemas are all controlled by the Sasikala clan. The shell companies, dubious investments, fund flow and fudging of accounts were the various aspects covered under the allegations. "My concern is that, they (officials) should not keep something at our properties and later show that they had seized it from there", he said.

"Even if they arrest me for 20 years, I will come out as 74 years old and still serve the state", Dinakaran told media persons after news of raids across the country on his friends and relatives broke. Thursday's raids are likely to weaken the Sasikala camp.

Meanwhile, former state transport minister Senthil Balaji, Perambur MLA P Vetrrivel, Ambattur MLA V Alexander and Theagaraya Nagar MLA P Kalairajan and other leaders owing allegiance to Dhinakaran were seen flocking at his residence. "They can't scare us with raids", he said.
