A Chennai based anti-corruption activist group has submitted a complaint to TN Director General of Police Arappor Iyakkam accusing VK Sasikala and her family members of usurping government and private property.
In a complaint filed on Thursday, the group claimed that the AIADMK general secretary and her relatives were involved in encroaching in government land and ponds in Tamil Nadu for the last two decades.
The activist group demanded that immediate action be taken against 'law violators', an FIR be filed and the encroached land be recovered.
The complaint particularly pertains to Siruthavur, Payanoor and Karunkuzhipallam villages of Thiruporur and Kanchipuram. According to it, 112 acres of land in the area were allegedly compounded by Sasikala and her relatives, with the police providing round-the-clock security, The News Minute reported.
"It becomes a great cause of concern for people of Tamil Nadu that a person involved in grabbing of government lands, ponds and other private property is at the verge of becoming Chief Minister," Jayaram Venkatesan, convener of Arappor Iyakkam, wrote in the complaint.
"In spite of several complaints of land grabbing, local police officials have just been hand in glove in the whole process and not acted on it," he claimed.
Arappor Iyakkam even attached documents and listed out four case studies in which Sasikala and her family members have been accused.
Music director Gangai Amaran's accusation has also featured in the letter. "Ms.Sasikala sent VN Sudhakaran to Ganagai Amaran's home along with officials and threatened them and got signatures for sale transfer. The land was registered in the name of Ms.Sasikala. Mr.Gangai Amaran has not only complained but also said this in open court and recorded clearly in the Cunha Judgement of the Disproportionate assets case of the former CM, Sasikala, Illavarasi and Sudhakaran," the letter stated.
