ED raids TN minister, his MP son in money laundering case; DMK dubs action 'vendetta


The Enforcement Directorate on Monday conducted searches at the premises of DMK leader and Tamil Nadu Higher Education Minister K Ponmudy and his MP son Gautham Sigamani in a money laundering case linked to alleged illegal sand mining, official sources said.

The agency, according to the sources, recovered around Rs 70 lakh cash and some pounds from the premises of the minister. The statement of the father-son duo may also be recorded during the searches.

The 72-year-old minister is the second in the cabinet of Chief Minister M K Stalin to come under the scanner of the federal probe agency after Transport Minister Senthil Balaji. Balaji was raided and arrested by the ED in June as part of an alleged cash-for-jobs linked money laundering case investigation.
