CHENNAI: DMK leader and former state health minister M R K Paneerselvam, his wife and son may have to face the court once again in the Rs 3.01 crore disproportionate assets case.

This comes after the state government filed a revision petition in Madras high court, to set aside an order of a lower court, which discharged M R K Paneerselvam, his wife  Senthamizselvi and son Kathiravan from the case.

Justice P Devadass who heard the petition filed by Inspector of Police, Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, Cuddalore, ordered notice, returnable by three weeks, to the trio.

According to the petitioner, Paneerselvam had amassed wealth to the tune of Rs 3.01 crore in his name and in the names of his wife and son, disproportionate to his known sources of income during the period between April 15, 2006 and March 21, 2011 when he was the health minister.

The investigating officer examined 59 witnesses and cited 60 witnesses including himself and collected 111 documents. However, the Special Judge/Chief Judicial Magistrate, Cuddalore on February 3, 2016 discharged Paneerselvam, his wife and son from the case.
