Chennai, May 5 (IANS) The DMK on Thursday requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a probe by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) into the “unaccounted” money held by Tamil Nadu realtor P.Anbunathan, who is allegedly close to several ministers of the AIADMK government.

A memorandum demanding this was handed over to Modi by DMK’s spokesperson T.K.S. Elangovan and the party Rajya Sabha member K.P.Ramalingam at the Parliament House in New Delhi, and a copy released to the media here by the DMK.

The DMK, in its memorandum, has alleged that Anbunathan, based in Karur, around 380 km from here, has made several investments within and outside India in violation of the Indian laws.

According to the memorandum, the Election Commission and the Income Tax authorities raided a warehouse owned by Anbunathan and seized large volume of case and cash couting machines.

Following the raid, the DMK alleged that the Karur district Superintendent of Police Vanitha Pandey was threatened by unknown persons.

Copies of the memorandum were also sent to union home and finance ministers, union home secretary and secretaries of departments of financial services and revenue, directors of the Central Bureau of Investigation and ED, the governor of Reserve Bank of India and principal commissioner of Income Tax Department.

Incidentally on Wednesday, Anbunathan was granted anticipatory bail by the Madras High Court.

A case was registered against him following the seizure of Rs.10.33 lakh case and several cash counting machines from his godown and a van that was disguised as an ambulance from a garage recently.
