Jaya Tv Raids : IT department search Jayalalithaa's Poes Garden property
In the fresh raids against Sasikala Natarajan and her family members, the officials of the Income Tax department on Friday reached Chennai's Poes Garden. Poes Garden was the residence of late Jayalalithaa, the former TN chief minister, and Sasikala was staying there before her conviction in the DA case earlier this year. Jaya TV CEO Vivek Jayaraman also arrived at the Poes Garden while the IT raids were underway. Meanwhile the Income Tax officials said that they did not enter the residence of Jayalalithaa. The raids were restricted to the room used by Jayalalithaa's personal assistant Poongundran. The Rs 1,430 crore that was seized during the Income Tax raids on locations owned by Sasikala and her associates was meant to be invested in real estate. The property-related documents were seized from the properties of Sasikala's nephew and Jaya TV CEO Vivek Jayaraman.
