Tamil Nadu police sources said that they will act against Kanthi Alagiri, the managing director of Dhaya Cyber Park, on charges of seizing a temple property based on a complaint filed by a priest.

According to a petition filed to Chief Minister"s Special Cell, Kanthi had taken control of several acres of temple land in Uthangudi located near the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court.

The petition filed by temple priest Subramaniya Iyer alleged that the land, which was handed over to the temple in 1936, was sold to lottery businessman Santiago Martin and later was handed over to Kanthi via one of her close aides.

Police officials said that they are gathering information on the complaint and a case will be registered when they get evidences on the offence.

Meanwhile, Union Minister and DMK leader M K Alagiri on Sunday, Aug 7 lashed out at a section of media for publishing 'false' reports about his family's wealth to tarnish his image and said he would initiate legal action against it.

"All property acquired by my family members were bought through legal transactions and they have been properly accounted," he said.
