CHENNAI: Justice GK Ilanthiraiyan of Madras High Court on Friday directed the Salem city police to launch a probe on a complaint filed against former AIADMK Minister N Subramanian for allegedly taking money with a promise to offer a government job and cheating a man. The judge passed the order on disposing of a plea by K Munusamy a resident of Salem Jhonsonpet. According to the petitioner, when Subramanian served as the Adi - Dravidar Welfare Minister from 2011 to 2015, he got Rs 65 lakh from the petitioner and promised him of offering a job in the government.
Since Subramanian did not honour his words, Munusamy lodged a police complaint. Though the petitioner lodged a complaint with the DVAC in Salem district, the authorities did not turn up for his complaint.
Recording the submissions, the judge directed the Salem police to inquire about the complaint by filing an FIR within two weeks.
