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.
