In the wee hours of today, a police team took Vendhar Movies Madhan to Tirupur, where he was hiding, for further investigation.
“The police team, along with Madhan, started to Tirupur at 4.45 am. Heavy security was provided,” sources said.
Only recently, Chennai city Police commissioner S George detailed two senior police officers to Madhan investigation.
Additional deputy commissioners (ADCs) Balasubramanian and Ashok Kumar will work beside ADC S Radhakrishnan who had been handling the case.
Quoting sources, reports said the commissioner thought the case needed to be dealt with ‘more delicately.’
Madhan was planning to set up an ashram in Devprayag in Uttarakhand, according to officers of Central Crime Branch (CCB) of Chennai City Police. He was apprehended on Monday in Tirupur at an associate’s residence.
According to sources, he had bought a piece of land and has been planning to set up an ashram there to evade the arrest by police. The CCB recovered the documents relating to the purchase of property from him.
