The fate of TTV Dinakaran has grown more darker with Delhi police tightening their talon grip on the leader over the alleged bribe attempt on Election Commission officials.
Police officials on Wednesday night served summons to AIADMK deputy chief T.T.V. Dinakaran in Chennai, in a case of an alleged attempt to bribe Election Commission officials in Delhi for retrieving the party’s “two leaves” symbol.
It is, however, not known when Dinakaran has been asked to appear before them. Assistant Commissioner Sanjay Sherawat and another official served the summons on Dinakaran at his Besant Nagar residence in Chennai.
The Delhi police personnel refused to speak to the media while leaving the premises.
A party worker tried allegedly to set himself ablaze in front of the house of Dinakaran. The self-immolation bid was thwarted by other cadres.
Dinakaran had, soon after the arrest of Sukesh Chandrasekhar, the alleged middleman in the bribery deal, asserted that he would face the matter legally.He had denied any knowledge of Sukesh. On Tuesday the Delhi police had issued a lookout notice against Dinakaran. The lookout notice was issued in the wake of inputs that he was an NRI and could try to flee the country, police said.
Meanwhile, Delhi police sources said there is strong evidence to show Sukesh and Dhinakaran had been in constant touch with each other for the alleged deal.
