Madras High Court quashes corruption charges against AIADMK leader SP Velumani

Last month, however, the High Court had said that prima facie, it seemed as if the FIRs against him were mala fide. The Court had reserved orders in the matter on November 8.

In 2019, NGO Arappor Iyakkam had filed a PIL highlighting instances of corruption in awarding of tenders by civic bodies in Chennai and Coimbatore, and Velumani’s involvement in the same during the AIADMK regime. The High Court had appointed Superintendent of Police R Ponni to probe into the complaints and find out whether any cognisable offence was made out.

The officer gave a clean chit to Velumani in December 2019, and in January 2020, the government in power accepted the preliminary inquiry. However, after a change of rule in Tamil Nadu, in May 2021, the DVAC registered two FIRs against Velumani.
