Kidnapping case filed against Sasikala

The Koovathur police have registered a case against AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala and her supporters on charges of kidnapping and illegally confining party MLAs at a resort.

The police booked them after Madurai (South) legislator S S Saravanan, who 'escaped' in disguise from Golden Bay Resorts on Monday, lodged a complaint with the director general of police.

In his complaint, Saravanan, who joined chief minister O Panneerselvam's camp, said the MLAs had been traumatised after being forced to stay at the resort since February 8.

A team led by Kancheepuram superintendent of police J Mutharasi gained entry into the resort on Wednesday morning and began inquiries with the MLAs. Sources said the MLAs said they had been staying voluntarily and had not been confined.

Meanwhile, Sasikala's nephew T T V Dinakaran, who was inducted into the party and elevated to the position of deputy general secretary by her, visited the resort to hold discussions with the MLAs. He told reporters that the party was waiting for the invitation from governor C Vidyasagar Rao to form the government.
