DVAC searches 21 premises of ex-Tamil Nadu minister MR Vijayabhaskar in Chennai and Karur | Chennai News – Times of India


TRICHY: A Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) team, led by four deputy superintendents of police, has been carrying searches at the office and residence of former transport minister and AIADMK leader M R Vijayabhaskar, since early morning.
The searches are being carried out at 20 places in Karur and one in Chennai, highly placed sources confirmed.

Local police deployed outside former transport minister MR Vijayabhaskar‘s residence in Karur town as the DVAC team searches his house.
The DVAC is conducting the searches based on alleged complaints received from lorry owners about forcing them to purchase reflective stickers and other equipment from a particular company, in a bid to favour it, said the sources.
While the DVAC has booked the former minister in a disproportionate assets case in Chennai, it has now carried out searches in more than 20 places, including his residence, office and dying units in Karur.
Vijayabhaskar contested unsuccessfully the Karur assembly segment in the April state election.
He was defeated in a close contest with V Senthil Balaji of DMK, who holds the electricity portfolio.
