Few days after actor R. Sarathkumar’s residence was raided by Income Tax teams, the heat is now turned on to his wife Radhika Sarathkumar. Reports suggest that the IT team raided the office of the actress in Chennai today morning. The axe fell on the Sarathkumar family after news came out that the political party he supports started distributing money before the upcoming elections in R K Nagar. The elections, however, cancelled by the EC looking at all the recent developments.
“The department is keen on getting to know the money trail between Sarathkumar and the AIADMK (Amma). In Monday’s grilling, we could not get much information from Sarathkumar. We have information that the money trail could lead us to his wife’s company,” an official was quoted by a leading daily. Sarathkumar is the chief of All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi and is a staunch supporter of TTV Dinakaran who belongs to AIADMK.
However, Sources say that no major cash proportions were seized during these raids but the heat will be on Sarathkumar. Reports say that R. Sarathkumar was questioned by the IT officials for many hours and he did not give any convincing statements. This resulted in the IT team conducting raids on his wife Radhika Sarathkumar’s office, Radaan Media Pvt Ltd. IT officials say that they have evidence to believe that Sarathkumar is involved in the Chain which brings in funding for the elections and they will soon crack the case.
Radaan Media Pvt Ltd produces numerous daily soups on Tamil television networks and feature films as well.
