A lookout circular has been issued against ex-AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran on Wednesday. The notice has been issued by the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police in fear that Dhinakaran may leave the country. Dhinakaran is under investigation for his alleged involvement in a case of bribery. The Delhi police has charged him of attempting to bribe an Election Commission official to have the two leave symbol for his faction of AIADMK, led by Sasikala Natarajan.
He, however, has denied the charges. “I haven’t bribed anyone. How can I do all this? I will face it (the charge) legally if I get a summons,” he said.
A look out circular (LOC) is a circular letter used by authorities to check whether a traveling person is wanted by the police. It may be used at immigration checks at international borders (like International airports or sea ports). DCP (Crime Branch) Madhur Verma has confirmed that a lookout notice has been issued against Dhinakaran. The police is skeptical as Dhinakaran is a non-residential Indian who could easily try to flee the country.
Immigration officials have been alerted, police said.
Dhinakaran has also been charged of using Sukesh Chandrasekhar, an apparent middleman who was recently arrested with 1.3 crore in cash from a five-star hotel.
