New Delhi: Delhi Police went from one court room to another but couldn't find a judge for hours to seek AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran's close aide Sukesh Chandrasekar’s custody for attempting to bribe Election Commission officials.

Chandrasekar was arrested from a south Delhi hotel on Sunday night allegedly with Rs 1.3 crore that was meant for bribing the officials.

Along with journalists, Crime Branch sleuths waiting for his custody were at the Patiala court complex to attend the remand proceedings on Monday.

But that was not to be. A police officer told reporters that the accused would be presented in Tis Hazari court, forcing journalists to rush there along with men from the Crime Branch.

At 4.40 p.m., police brought Chandrasekar before Special Judge Poonam Chaudhary in court room number 25. But the concerned judge was on a half-day leave. The accused was then taken to link court room number 313 of Special Judge M.K. Nagpal but he was unavailable as well.

The accused was then brought to court room number 139 of Special Judge Hemani Malhotra but she was also not there.

The police was forced to approach Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Satish Kumar Arora's door in room number 38 but could not find him there.

It went on for about 30 minutes before the police finally decided that the accused would be taken to the residence of the concerned judge to seek the custody of the 27-year-old suspect who has reportedly confessed he was playing the middleman for Dinakaran to bribe poll officials to reclaim the AIADMK's disputed and now frozen "two leaves" symbol.

Finally, Judge Chaudhary remanded him to eight days' police custody.
