Poll symbol case: Dhinakaran, aide sent to JC till May 15
AIADMK (Amma) faction leader TTV Dhinakaran and his close aid were on Monday sent to judicial custody for a fortnight by a special court here in the Election Commission bribery case. Special Judge Poonam Chaudhry sent Dhinakaran and his aide Mallikarjuna to Tihar Jail till May 15 after the police said that the accused were not needed for custodial interrogation. The police told the court that a number of witnesses were yet to be examined in the case and the investigation was still going on in the matter. Both were produced before the court after expiry of their police custody.
The court also extended the judicial custody of alleged hawala operator Nathu Singh till May 15 after he was produced before it on the expiry of his one-day judicial custody. PTI
