New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday decided not to grant bail to the alleged middleman between AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran and the Election Commission officials in the attempt to procure the ‘two leave’ party symbol.

This is the second time that the court has rejected the bail application of Sukesh Chandrasekhar who has allegedly transferred money by Dhinakaran to be further given to the EC officials for a ruling favouring their faction.  

Having background of forgery of documents and finding of alleged fake identity cards of various members of parliaments while he was taken into custody on April 15th was one of the grounds for rejection of his application.

Rejecting the plea of the accused justice S Muralidhar observed that "I am not inclined to grant bail to the accused. The recovery of forged identity card of Member of Parliament is not an ordinary forgery. The police are investigating into the matter".

Dhinakaran's close aide Mallikarjuna and suspected hawala operators Nathu Singh and Lalit Kumar have also been granted bail.

The matter pertains to Dhinakaran's alleged attempt to bribe an EC official  trying to get the party's poll symbol of 'two leaves' in a by-election to the R K Nagar Assembly seat in Tamil Nadu.
