Earlier last week, the AIADMK (Amma) leader confessed to meeting Sukesh Chandrasekar. During the course of interrogation and sustained quizzing, TTV allegedly told the investigators that he did meet Suresh, who had posed as a high court judge and sought to help him in the matter, police sources said.
Dinakaran, who is accused of trying to bribe an Election Commission official in a bid to retain the 'two leaves' symbol of AIADMK, however, maintained that he did not pay any money to Sukesh in this regard, police said.
A resident of Bengaluru, Sukesh studied at Bishop Cotton School on Residency Road. There are 15 FIRs and over 100 complaints of extortion in Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad against Sukesh.
