HC dismisses plea seeking FIR against Karunanidhi's grandson

Tamil Nadu
Chennai, Apr 15: Madras High Court today dismissed a plea seeking to file an FIR against the grandson of former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for allegedly threatening a woman and getting registered her properties in his uncle's name.

Justice C T Selvam while, dismissing the petition filed by one Bharathi, seeking filing of an FIR against M K M Arivunidhi, said it was nothing but an attempt to gain political mileage. The petitioner submitted that she owned five pieces of property in the city and in Kancheepuram, which she had acquired through the income of her husband and father.

She alleged that on December 21, 2009 Arivunidhi's driver came to her house in a car, forcibly took her to his master's residence at Gopalapuram area when her husband was away from the city. She alleged that a sub-Registrar was summoned to the house that day and they forcibly obtained her signatures on papers, reported to be Power of Attorney in favour of one J Sundaramoorthy, Arivunidhi's uncle.

She also alleged that witness signatures were obtained by Arivunidhi and his driver in those documents and that withinfive hours that day, they took her to all Registrar offices and got registered the Power of Attorneys in favour of the uncle.

The petitioner alleged that on December 24, 2009 Sundaramoorthy executed three sale deeds in favour of Arivunidhi's wife. She alleged that when she decided to file a police complaint, one piece of property was transferred in her name.

Police had closed her complaint, saying it was civil in nature and there is no possibility of taking criminal action against them. Hence she filed a petition to entrust the Investigation to any other Authority and direct to register FIR.

Justice Selvam noted the complaint was lodged in 2013 for an incident which occurred in 2009. Despite information given to her that the matter was civilian nature, she had filed a petition on April 4 this year seeking a direction to file FIR, which was nothing but an attempt to gain political mileage, he said and dismissed the petition.
