IT department conducts search & recovery operations at Poes Garden

Chennai: Income tax sleuths recovered two computers, a tablet and six pen drives from two rooms at the Poes Garden residence of late chief minister J. Jayalalithaa during the Friday night raids. "It pains us that there has been a raid at Jayalalithaa's house which we consider as a temple and the state government was in the process of converting it into a memorial", he said.

The raids on 187 locations that also spanned Bengaluru, Hyderabad and New Delhi were conducted by over 1,000 officials, who split into more than a dozen teams.

Speaking to reporters, Dinakaran blasted the BJP leadership for the raids and said his party would soon teach the saffron party a befitting lesson.

During the last week, the IT department conducted massive raids across the state. "This raid is being carried out to defame Amma and was done with the cooperation of the family of Sasikala", she said.

Mr. Dhivakaran had contended that Jayalalithaa made full use of Sasikala during her lifetime but left her with no safeguards when she departed.

V P Kalairajan, a Dhinakaran supporter and former MLA, said, "This is just political vendetta and targeting of one family".

TTV Dinakaran, criticised the Chief Minister and the other Ministers for being mute spectators for all the events.
