Four BJP workers, including an alleged assistant of a Union minister, booked for cheating in the name of allotting tickets during the Tamil Nadu Assembly election.
The Chennai Police booked four BJP workers for cheating in the name of allotting tickets during the Tamil Nadu Assembly election. One of the accused, Narothamman, is reportedly the assistant of a Union Minister.
Complainant Bhuvnesh Kumar, a BJP worker in Arani, claimed that Narothamman had demanded Rs 1 crore for a party ticket.
Bhuvnesh wanted to contest from Arani.
He paid Rs 50 lakh as advance for the ticket and was supposed to pay the rest of the amount after his candidature was announced.
However, Bhuvnesh’s name did not appear on the list released by the party after which Narothamman asked him to contest from Tiruvannamalai.
Bhuvnesh wanted his sister to contest from Tiruvannamalai, but her nomination was rejected due to discrepancies in the form.
Since both siblings couldn’t contest, Bhuvnesh, along with his father, demanded their money back.
However, Narothamman never responded to their request.
Following this, a complaint was lodged by Bhuvnesh.
