CHENNAI: Former KK Nagar DMK w K Dhanasekaran was arrested here on Tuesday in connection with a property-related case though the Madras High Court had granted him interim advance bail in a cheating case earlier in the day.

The arrest was based on a complaint by a woman that Dhanasekaran had trespassed into her property and demolished a portion of it in Vadapalani. The complainant, R Parameswari, owned a house-cum-shopping complex worth Rs 15 crore on the Arcot Road in Vadapalani, the police said. She mortgaged the 10,000 sq ft-property with a financial institution, Janopakara Saswatha Nidhi, for Rs 2.5 lakh.

Default in repayment of the loan led to a dispute between Parameswari and the finance company, which “illegally” auctioned the property in “collusion with some people” to one Lalitha Sukumaran, who subsequently sold it to one Ananthalingam.

Exploiting the situation, Dhanasekaran joined hands with the opposite group and he and his henchmen  trespassed into the property and demolished one of the shops in the complex, the police said. Dhanasekaran, considered to be very close to party leader M K Stalin, also allegedly threatened her.

Parameswari had lodged a complaint at the Vadapalani police station on January 9, 2010 and a case was registered.  Last month, Parameswari filed a petition claiming that investigation was not conducted on proper lines and that her statements were recorded without her knowledge.

The case was reopened and further probe led to the arrest of two persons, Murugesan and Govindarajan, on August 8. On Tuesday, Dhansekaran was arrested from near his residence. He would be produced before a court and remanded, the police added.
