1.5 crores seized in Tamil Nadu ahead of by poll

Unaccounted cash worth Rs. 1.48 crore, allegedly meant to bribe voters, was seized by taxmen during raids on a party colleague of TTV Dhinakaran, the politician who broke away from Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK last year.

The raids were carried out overnight on a leader of Dhinakaran’s AMMK in Andipatti, where assembly by-elections will be held tomorrow along with the national election.

Income Tax officials told NDTV that 94 packets of cash, with ward numbers and number of voters, were found. Markings on the packets indicate the plan was to give each voter Rs. 300 as bribe.

The raids took place hours after the Election Commission cancelled voting in Vellore, one of the 39 constituencies where elections are to be held tomorrow, over a massive amount of cash seized from the warehouse of a DMK candidate.
