Chennai | Income Tax sleuths conducted searches in the office block of the Poes Garden residence of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, a senior official said.
Following inputs, the search operation was launched yesterday in the office block and a room used by jailed and deposed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala at “Veda Nilayam,” the Poes Garden residence.
“We have not searched the entire Poes Garden premises.
Our team went at 9 pm and only Poongundran’s room, records room and other room used by Sasikala were searched,” the top Income Tax official told PTI.
Poongundran had served as an aide of the former chief minister.
The seizure included a laptop and the search would be concluded soon, he added.
The search came days after multi-city searches in 187 locations linked to ten income tax assessee groups which include those linked to Sasikala, her kin and some associates.
