The Directorate of Vigilance and Anti Corruption (DVAC) on Thursday conducted searches at the properties belonging to senior AIADMK leader and former Tamil Nadu Transport Minister MR Vijayabhaskar. It is reported that the searches began around 7 am on Thursday, and were conducted at around 21 places located in Karur district and in Chennai.

After registering a disproportionate assets case against the former AIADMK Minister, DVAC officials commenced searches at 21 places, including his house at Andankoil and his dyeing unit in Karur. The houses of Mr Vijayabhaskar's parents and his brother at Andankoil are also being searched.

Vijayabhaskar was appointed the Transport Minister in 2016. In the Assembly elections held recently, MR Vijayabhaskar lost to DMK’s Senthil Balaji, who was incidentally accused of a “job scam” in the transport department while he was a minister from 2011-2015.
