The alleged middleman in the TTV Dinakaran bribery case, Sukesh Chandrasekar is likely to be taken to Chennai. The crime branch police who are expected to meet Dinakaran on Wednesday evening are likely to take Sukesh along and bring the duo face to face.
Dinakaran, who was named in the first information report by the Delhi police is accused of colluding with Sukesh. The duo is accused of attempting to bribe the election commission to get a favourable verdict on the AIADMK two leaves symbol. Sukesh has been in police custody ever since he was arrested from a star hotel in Delhi. The Delhi police had claimed that they would proceed to Chennai only after completing investigations in Delhi.
Dinakaran, who is an accused in the case distanced himself from the AIADMK on Wednesday. He had earlier claimed that he had no knowledge of anyone by the name Sukesh Chandrasekhar and had neither paid anyone for any favours. Dinakaran also added that he would join the probe if police direct him to do so.
