- Suresh Chandrasekhar, Bangalore businessman, arrested in April
- Accused of acting on behalf of AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran
- Planned to bribe officers to get party symbol allotted to Dinakaran: cops
Now over the last weekend, tax officials have taken over about 10 uber-luxe cars including from Kochi where they had been parked in what officials described as "posh premises".
The cars weren't too shabby either - they include a Porsche, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce and Range Rover.
The 27-year-old remains in jail on charges of trying to buy the party symbol of Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK. Competing factions of the party claim rights to the two-leaves symbol, which is easily recognised by voters and is a huge political asset.
Seven cops from Delhi were suspended last month for allowing Mr Chandrashekar to roam freely and conduct business deals while he was in Bengaluru for a court hearing in October in a seperate cheating case.
He has been arrested twice earlier and is wanted in criminal cases in different states.
