A. Soundarapandian, a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) representing Lalgudi constituency in Tiruchi district, has filed a bail application in the Madras High Court Bench here in a case registered by the Anti Land Grabbing Special Cell attached to the Tiruchi City Crime Branch police.

The MLA, belonging to Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), stoutly denied the prosecution case that he had forcibly purchased a piece of land for Rs. 40 lakh and later robbed the money from the land seller through one of his accomplices.

Former DMK MLA Anbil Periyasamy (47), who was a co-accused in the same case, had also filed a separate bail application.
