Suspected tax evasion; IT raid at Jaya TV, associates

Suspected tax evasion; IT raid at Jaya TV, associates”

Some local media establishments in Chennai claimed that as many as 187 locations spread across four states that are linked with the Sasikala family are being raided as part of the I-T department's "Operation Clean Money".

The channel was initially started by former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, Jaya TV is now controlled by imprisoned AIADMK leader VK Sasikala's family. The raids are being conducted for alleged money laundering through newly floated shell companies.

He is a supporter of former AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala. Shell companies, dubious investments, fund flow and fudging of accounts were the various aspects covered under the allegations. "Raids were conducted in Manargudi also and nearly all premises belonging to associates of Diwakaran were raided", said a top I-T official to The New Indian Express. Raids are also on at Mannargudi, the hometown of the Sasikala clan. As the ruling AIADMK faction headed by Chief Minister E Palaniswamy patched up with the rebel faction led by O Panneerselvam, dumping Sasikala as per demands of OPS, Jaya TV aired critical views.

IT sources also confirmed that no raids happened at TTV Dhinakaran's house.

Hitting out at the Centre, sacked AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran said, "People are watching everything, they understand what is going on". Raids are also being conducted on Vivek the director of Jaya TV. This is a conspiracy to remove me and Sasikala from politics.

Apart from Jaya TV, the residence and office of Sasikala's nephew Vivek Jayaraman, his sister's house in Thyagaraya Nagar and another house in Bengaluru are among the other places being raided by I-T. If you raid me for saying that, I will repeat that. "We will not be cowed down by these raids", he added. "The Centre is targeting Sasikala and my family".
