NEW DELHI: The Delhi police on Friday arrested a man named Natthu Singh who is one of the alleged persons to have helped AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran in transferring money to Sukesh, the middleman arrested earlier.  

Singh, who was produced before the court, has been put under the police custody for two days. Police said that this is to define the money trail of the present “two leaves” symbol scam. According to the police the accused indulged in transaction of unaccounted money and facilitated transfer to Sukesh in Delhi.

The police have also allegedly recovered a phone call through which the conversation between the leader and the Hawala operator happened.  

While Dhinakaran is being interrogated, Sukesh the middle man who was under the police custody was granted judicial custody till May 12th.

As per the allegations in the FIR, Dhinakaran and Mallikarjun conspired and stuck a deal with Chandrashekhar and others including Singh to get the symbol pending report of the Election Commission of India, which was frozen due to a vertical split in the party soon after the demise of party’s president J Jayalalitha earlier this year.
