31sasikalaChennai :The police on Wednesday registered FIRs against AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala and legislature party leader Edapadi K. Palanisamy after a party legislator accused them of abduction. The party has denied the claim.S.S. Saravanan, a legislator from Madurai South constituency, filed an abduction complaint against Sasikala and Public Works Minister Palanisamy, who was elected leader of the AIADMK legislature wing in place of Sasikala.

Saravanan landed up at acting Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam’s residence here on Monday and told the media that he scaled a wall at the resort in Koovathur, 90 km from here, and jumped down to escape.He said he had to disguise himself to get away from the resort where he alleged he was held against his wishes.After Saravanan’s complaint, hundreds of police personnel on Wednesday reached the resort, where a large number of AIADMK MLAs supporting Sasikala are housed.

“Saravanan’s complaint is totally false. He himself had told police a couple of days back that he is staying at the resort on his own will. The police had come here to enquire and submit a report to the Madras High Court,” Inbadurai, AIADMK lawmaker, told reporters.While the media is not allowed inside the resort, legislators come out in turns and parrot the standard statement.The legislators at the resort have switched off their phone lines and some do not answer the calls or cut the call if it is from the media.

Saravanan too has switched off his phone and attempts by IANS to reach him went in vain.Sasikala supporters insist that the MLAs backing her faction against Panneerselvam are at the resort on their free will.Many of the legislators made the same point to the media on Wednesday.One of the legislators, Thenarasu, told the media that the legislators would vacate the resort once the Tamil Nadu Governor invited their leader to form a government.He said the legislators could also vacate the resort if Palanisamy told them to do so.Thenarasu said the police made some enquiries and left. But others at the site said they were still massed outside the complex.

Sasikala, who remains the AIADMK General Secretary, earlier left for Bengaluru by road to surrender, a day after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction for corruption.Also held guilty were the late Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa and two of Sasikala’s relatives.

Vikas Dubey, a history sheeter who brutally murdered eight policemen in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur, is still far from being arrested by the police. Hundreds of police teams are looking for him. At the same time, SSB has also been alerted on the state’s border with Nepal but no clue is available.

Meanwhile, the former DGP of UP, Vikram Singh said that the way the last location of Vikas Dubey has been traced in Auraiya, then it is very likely that he has caught the path of Chambal’s rugged route through Etawah. Agra can be reached through the rugged interior. After reaching Agra, it becomes easy to enter MP and Rajasthan.

In the case of notorious criminals, it is often seen that due to the setting, it becomes difficult for the two state police to become a co-ordinator or the other state police conducts a search operation to show themselves, but the criminal is hiding there.

Significantly, in the Bikeru village of Chaubepur, Kanpur, a bloody encounter took place between the police and Vikas Dubey’s gang on Thursday – Friday night. The police team reached Vikas Dubey’s raid here. Here Vikas Dubey along with his gang attacked the police, in which eight soldiers were martyred.
