Tamil Nadu police on Tuesday paid a surprise visit to the resort at Suntikoppa in Kodagu district, where AIADMK MLAs loyal to TTV Dhinakaran are camping.
Using the case registered against one of the MLAs at Namakkal police station in Tamil Nadu, around 25 cops led by a senior police official raided the resort. After verifying that the MLAs are camping there, the cops left the place.
Sources said while constables stood guard outside the resort, senior police officers inspected the rooms inside for an hour.
The Tamil Nadu police told the Kodagu police that the MLA they were searching for is not staying at the resort. The 19 lawmakers currently camping at the resort would go back to their state on Wednesday.
