VELLORE: Sleuths of the Income Tax (IT) department on Saturday raided a DMK man's house at Puduvasoor in the district and seized unaccounted cash worth Rs 27 lakh, sources said.

The raid was held ahead of the Vellore Lok Sabha constituency polls, scheduled to be held on August 5. The date of fresh elections in Vellore was announced on July 4 and the filing of nominations began on July 11.

 

DMK re-nominated Kathir Anand, while AIADMK re-nominated AC Shanmugam, founder of Puthiya Neethi Katchi (PNK) for the polls.

Sources said a team of 10 IT officials, along with members of a poll squad and a Static Surveillance Team (SST) visited the residence of DMK member, Ezhumalai, around 11 am and began the search.

The team found `27 lakh cash in the house, sources said, adding that Ezhumalai claimed that the money was his personal earning.

But he could show anything as proof.

Similar raids were conducted at the houses of DMK treasurer Durai Murugan, whose son DM Kathir Anand is the party’s candidate before the April 18 polls, which led to the seizure of unaccounted cash.

Another raid at the residence of Damodaran, a relative of local DMK functionary Poonjolai Seenivasan of Katpadi, yielded Rs 11.48 crore. Subsequently, the EC had rescinded the polls.
