CHENNAI: After searching the residences of relatives and those closely associated with VK Sasikala and TTV Dhinakaran, Income Tax department sleuths on Friday night reached the most unexpected place — the Poes Garden residence of the late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, which AIADMK cadre hold in high regard.

Around 9.30 pm, IT officials entered ‘Veda Nilayam’, once described as a place covered by iron-curtains. Department sources indicated that they had prior permission from the Madras High Court to search the premises and were specifically searching the chamber of Poongundran, Jayalalithaa’s secretary. After about 30 minutes, more sleuths joined in. A few days ago, the department searched the residence of Poongundran.
