Justice RS Ramanathan gave the order on a bail petition
by Natarajan, who was arrested on February 19.
He was arrested on a complaint by one Vilar Ramalingam,
who alleged that three persons at the instigation of Natarajan
and his brother had grabbed his 15,000 square feet of land,
where he proposed to construct a monument in memory of Lankan
Tamils who died in 2009 in the war in the island nation.
Natarajan was founder trustee of World Tamil Federation,
which was constructing the monument. Though he obtained bail
in this connection, he was in jail as four other cases were
registered against him on different dates.
Police had registered a case against him on a complaint
from one Vincent Albert of Thanjavur, who alleged Natarajan
and his three associates had grabbed his land worth Rs 1.25
crore and paid him only Rs 20 lakh and threatened him and his
family members. Hence he filed the present petition.
Natarajan is presently lodged at Tiruchirapalli Central
Madurai: The Madurai Bench of Madras High
Court on Tuesday granted to bail to M Natarajan, husband of Tamil
Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's aide Sasikala in one of the
five land grabbing cases filed against him.
