Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Nation -

CHEN­NAI: Tamil Nadu po­lice’s cen­tral crime branch on Sun­day sent two spe­cial teams to New Delhi and Ker­ala for ar­rest­ing Te­helka mag­a­zine’s for­mer ed­i­tor Sa­muel Mathew and two oth­ers for al­leg­ing Tamil Nadu chief min­is­ter Edap­padi K Palaniswami’s (EPS) hand in the se­quen­tial death of five peo­ple as­so­ci­ated with late CM J Jay­alalithaa’s Ko­danad es­tate. Ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials, the two teams headed by

cen­tral Crime Branch deputy com­mis­sioner SR Senthilku­mar have rushed to New Delhi and Ker­ala to ar­rest Mathew and Sayan. “As Mathew and Sayan have re­vealed al­le­ga­tions against CM EPS, we have re­ceived a com­plaint from the CM’s side say­ing they are air­ing base­less al­le­ga­tions to de­pict the CM in poor light. Hence, we are look­ing to nab Mathew, Sayan and ‘Way­alar’ Manoj for an en­quiry,” said the po­lice sources.
