Former DMK MLA gets jail term for corruption

Why jail of 3 years and 4 months only?  It must be at least 25 years!

 

CHENNAI: A special court Wednesday sentenced former DMK legislator Gomathi Srinivasan to over three years in jail for acquiring assets disproportionate to her known sources of income between 1996 and 2001.

 

Sentencing Srinivasan to rigorous imprisonment of three years and four months, the special court trying cases under Prevention of Corruption Act also levied a fine of Rs.5,000 on her.

 

Srinivasan had represented the DMK in the state assembly from Valangaiman constituency in Thanjavur between 1996 and 2001.

 

In a statement issued here, the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) said a case was registered against Srinivasan for acquiring assets disproportionate to her known sources of income to the tune of around Rs.1.3 million in the period she was a legislator.
