Kodanad break-in: Slain driver's brother sees CM's role

DMK leader Mr.Stalin also demanded an explanation from the chief Minister on this.

Ooty: C. Dhanapal (39), elder brother of slain driver Kanagaraj, the main
accused in the Kodanad break-in, who appeared for an enquiry at the Kotagiri police station on Monday evening, said that he suspected the role of chief minister Edappadi Palanisami in the suspicious death of his brother and ex-driver of late chief minister J.Jayalalithaa, who was killed in a road accident near Salem.

He added that he would move court for a CBCID enquiry if the investigation was not done properly. Mr.Dhanapal, who addressed media persons after coming out from the police station, said that he had been summoned by police at Kotagiri to attend an enquiry in the Kodanad break-in case, in which his slain brother Kanagaraj, was charged with conspiracy and fixed as the main accused.

“Kanagaraj was dropped from the Poes Garden duty way back in 2013. His conduct was good and there was no complaint against him over the years. Suddenly, he was fixed in the Kodanad break-in. What is more shocking is that he was killed in a road accident near Salem in mysterious circumstances when police had just fixed him in the list of suspects.

Though police claimed that it was an accident, it looks to be a planned murder,” he added. “ I suspect the alleged role of Mr.Edappadi Palanisami in the mysterious death of my brother. I further suspect that he was killed in order to protect the real person behind the Kodanad break-in conspiracy. In 2011, Saravanan was murdered in Salem. Here too, we suspect the role of Mr.Palanisami.

DMK leader Mr.Stalin also demanded an explanation from the chief Minister on this. If the investigation into my brother’s death is not done in the right way, I will approach the court for a CBCID enquiry,” Mr. Dhanapal added.
