Parameswari is among the directors of Chennai-based company Green House Promoters and Batcha, a close aide of Raja, was the MD. He died under mysterious circumstances last month and the case is also being investigated by the agency.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said some of the family members of Raja and his wife, who was the director (legal) in Green House Promoters, were on the board of the company, which acted as a link between various firms accused of having a role in routing money to Kalaignar TV.

The 31-page supplementary chargesheet revealed the routing of over Rs.200 crores from Dynamix Realty to Kalaignar TV through Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt. Ltd. and Cineyug Films Pvt. Ltd.

“The investigation has disclosed that there are a number of circumstances…which together conclusively establish that the amount of Rs.200 crore paid by Dynamix Realty to Kalaignar TV through Kusegaon Fruits and Cineyug Film, was not a genuine business transction but in the nature of illegal gratification paid in lieu of the licences, valuable spectrum and other undue benefit given by accused public servants to Swan Telecom,” the chargesheet said.

In the second chargesheet, the CBI has detailed through graphs the routing of gratification from various companies to Kalaignar TV.
