Dharmapuri: DMK Dharmapuri MP R Thamaraiselvan's brother R Aasaithambi was on Friday arrested here in a land grabbing case, police said.

Aasaithambi was produced before a court and remanded to judicial custody.

He was lodged in Salem central prison, SP Amit Kumar Singh said.

Aasaithambi is facing charges of encroaching on a piece of land belonging to one Manoharan in 2000.

On a petition by Manoharan, a district court had ruled in his favour in 2006.

Challenging the order, Aasaithambi had filed an appeal in the Madras High Court which was dismissed.

Despite the court's orders, the MP's brother had put up a hut in the illegally occupied land and threatened Manoharan, the SP said.

Manoharan lodged a complaint with the police on August 3, 2011, following which Aasaithambi was arrested, he said.
