After its massive raids in across Chennai and Tamil Nadu, the CBI reportedly have found evidence which shows that the officials of Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) allegedly covered up the illegal car imports of different members of DMK first family members.
According to sources, CBI raids revealed that the accused DRI officials have been trying to hide information regarding the usages of luxury import cars by MK Alagiri, MK Stalin and his son Udayanidhi.
CBI raids reveals that while Udayanidhi has a Toyota Estima, Alagiri and Stalin also are suspected to be using illegally imported cars violating import duty rules.
Sources reported that the investigating agency is investigating a BMW X5, a Toyota Lexus and a Prado SUV being used by Alagiri, Stalin and their families.
The latest revelations in the case might have boost up the probe by the CBI which had faced tremendous criticism following its sudden raid at Stalin's house. The agency was criticised as the raid was conducted within 48-hours of DMK's move of pulling out support from Congress-led UPA government.
Beginning from Prime Minister Manmmohan Singh to Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram slammed the CBI which later was forced to call off the raid. Now, with these new revelations against the DMK first family in Chennai, the CBI seems to have regained its lost position.
