Chennai: Vigilance officials on Thursday conducted
raids at the premises belonging to former DMK minister EV
Velu in connection with a disproportionate assets case.
The raids were in progress in Chennai and Tiruvannamalai
districts, DVAC sources said.
Velu, presently legislator elected to the Assembly from
Tiruvannamalai, is former food minister during the DMK regime.
Several DMK leaders and former Ministers besides MLAs
have faced police and DVAC action either on land grab charges
or allegations of disproportionate assets after the AIADMK
government came to power in May last year.
