Chennai: Sleuths from the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti Corruption (DVAC) conducted searches at 43 places, linked to former Health Minister and AIADMK senior leader Dr C Vijayabaskar today.

The 43 properties linked to Vijayabaskar are spread over Chennai, Chengalpattu, Kancheepuram, Coimbatore, Trichy and Pudukkottai.

Sources said the vigilance agency has initiated the raid based on complaints of disproportionate assets accumulated by Vijayabaskar.

This came after a case of disproportionate assets was registered against Vijayabaskar and his wife on Sunday.

DVAC had earlier conducted similar raids and filed charges of corruption against former Ministers MR Vijayabhaskar, SP Velumani and KC Veeramani.
