Chennai: Sleuths from the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti Corruption (DVAC) stormed at least 21 places linked to former Transport Minister and AIADMK leader M R Vijayabaskar.

Sources said raids are being conducted at his Chennai apartment and Karur house, apart from other places.

The operation is linked to alleged irregularities that took place in the Transport department in the previous AIADMK regime.

‘Raids have started only this morning. It is too early to comment anything. The outcome will be known only at the end of the operation,’ sources said.

The Karur strongman is one of the influential leaders in the AIADMK, which is now the main Opposition party in the State.
