CHENNAI: The Madras high court on Friday refused anticipatory bail to former Tamil Nadu dairy minister K T Rajenthrabhalaji in connection with cases registered for alleged job racketeering.
Justice M Nirmal Kumar dismissed two anticipatory applications moved by the former AIADMK minister.
On November 19, the court granted an interim relief to the petitioner by orally directing police not to arrest him till further orders.
According to the prosecution, FIRs have been registered against Rajenthrabhalaji based on complaints that he had swindled money to the tune of Rs 30 lakh from various people promising jobs in Aavin, a co-operative milk producing company owned by the state government.
Rajenthrabhalaji opposed the same and alleged that the cases had been registered against him due to political enmity.
