A special police team conducted an inquiry with actor Mahat Ragavendra, a childhood friend of Union Minister M K Alagiri’s son Durai Dayanidhi, in connection with the illegal granite case, here on Monday.
Ragavendra, who appeared as a Dharavi bar owner in the film Mankatha, produced by Cloud Nine Movies owned by Durai Dayanidhi, is a childhood friend of Dayanidhi and both were in touch either through mobile phone or social networking sites, police said. As Durai is absconding, a special team headed by DSP Thankavel, quizzed Mahat Ragavendra to find out the whereabouts of Dayanidhi. “We have summoned Durai’s close friends and employees of Cloud Nine Movies,” said a police officer.
In a related development, an Othakadai police team led by inspector John Britto raided the Mattuthavani bus terminus and seized two buses belonging Panner Mohamed, the owner of Madura granite. Mohamed is already undergoing imprisonment in the granite scam case.
