Security stepped up at DMK office, leaders’ residences

Security has been increased at the DMK headquarters and residences of its senior leaders in Chennai as a special court in Bangalore is set to deliver verdict in the 18-year-old wealth case against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Saturday.

On a request from DMK, security had been increased at “Anna Arivalayam”, the headquarters of DMK, two residences of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President M. Karunanidhi and the residence of K. Anbazhagan, party’s General Secretary, police said.

It was on Mr. Anbazhagan’s petition that the case had been transferred to Bangalore by the Supreme Court.
