Even as the Election Commission of India postponed the elections at the Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency, the police have arrested three persons in connection with the voter ID cases.
The police arrested Chinna Tambi, Chinna Dorai and Sharavana. Police officials said that a hunt is on for another 10 persons allegedly linked with the case.
City police commissioner T Suneel Kumar told reporters that MLA Munirathna was named as an accused as water bottles found in the flat bore his picture. "We will secure all the accused and will question their involvement in this case," the commissioner also said.
During the probe, the police questioned several persons whose cards were found at the scene. They said that they had given their card to a man who had promised them freebies.
Although the probe has found that a few of the accused persons were part of the Congress, the police are not ready as yet to pin the entire blame on the party. The police is also ascertaining if there is a conspiracy angle behind the incident.
