  • Income Tax officials conducted raids at Jaya TV office in Chennai

I-T officials also searched the residences of Sasikala's brother V Dhivakaran at Mannargudi (Sasikala's hometown), the Bengaluru residence of V Pugazhendi, a loyalist of Sasikala's nephew and designated political heir TTV Dhinakaran, and the house of Sasikala's niece in T Nagar, Chennai. Family members of Sasikala, particularly her nephew Vivek Jayaraman took up the reigns of the Channel.

The Income Tax Department has raided the office of the Jaya TV and Dr Namadhu MGR newspaper on Thursday.

The IT department chose to conduct the raids following allegations of tax evasion.

Clarifying that raid was not conducted at his Chennai house, he said searches were on at his farmhouse in Puducherry and other places. News agency PTI reports that the searches follow allegations of shell companies, dubious investments, fund flow and fudging of accounts by Jaya TV, started by former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and now controlled by the family of Sasikala, who was her closest aide.

JayaHarini, the abode of sidelined AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran, is bustling with activity since Thursday morning as party cadres start gathering near the residence to show their solidarity. The central government is behind these raids.




"I heard that raids are taking place at my farm house, it is a lonely place".

The I-T officials began the raid around 6 am which is still continuing in more than 180 different locations.

"If the Centre thinks they can destroy us by conducting such raids, they are day-dreaming", he added. "These raids have been conducted to further amplify the intra-party disputes of AIADMK". "We told the taxi company that the drivers will not be allowed to use their phones", said the official.

After the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy and his deputy, who was the former chief minister, O Panneerselvam joined hands in August, Jaya TV has been highly critical of the functioning of the ruling AIADMK government. "My simple question is why target the family?" asked Prasanna, spokesperson of the Sasikala-Dhinakaran faction of AIADMK.

The I-T raids were still on when this report was filed.
