Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MLA representing the Lalgudi assembly constituency A. Soundarapandian, was arrested by the city police here in the wee hours of Saturday in connection with a land grabbing case, two days after former State Transport Minister K.N. Nehru and six others were held on the same case.
Mr. Soundarapandian was returning home in a vehicle when the police held him near the Kollidam check post here and brought him to the community hall at the Armed Reserve ground in K.K. Nagar in the city. He was produced before Judicial Magistrate – IV Pushparani and remanded in judicial custody. He was later lodged in the Central Prison here.
Police sources said Soundarapandian was cited as one among the 11 accused in a land grabbing case wherein a piece of land belonging to a doctor of Thuraiyur was forcibly acquired for constructing the Kalaignar Arivalayam, the party’s district unit office, near the Chathram bus stand in the city.
