In a relief to DMK MLA and former Mayor Ma Subramanian and his wife, the HC has restrained the police from arresting both against whom a case has been registered by the CBCID police for allegedly grabbing land belonging to Tamil Nadu Small Industries Development Corporation Limited (TANSIDCO) using forged documents.
According to the prosecution, SIDCO had allotted the said land to one S K Kannan and as per a GO, the property can be assigned only to the legal heirs of the allottee. But while the legal heir certificate had not mentioned the name of Kanchana, the assignment was fabricated to show her as the daughter of the original allottee and the property grabbed. The original building was demolished and ground plus three floors constructed without obtaining any planning permission. Based on this, the prosecution insisted on the case requiring custodial interrogation of both the persons.
However, Subramanian in his plea for anticipatory bail submitted that the defacto complainant was a rival independent candidate who contested along with him during the 2016 general elections and polled a meagre 87 votes.
While the complainant’s election petition on similar grounds of filing false details regards the said property was duly dismissed, the present private complaint has been done to tarnish his image.
He also submitted that valid documents to establish that they were in lawful possession of the property was present and SIDCO has issued letter of recognition regards the property.
