New Delhi: VC Prakash, aide of AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran, has admitted to laundering Rs 2 crore in his statement to Delhi Police.

Prakash, in his statement, accessed by CNN-News18, conceded that he facilitated the movement of Rs 2 crore to Delhi on an immediate-basis to Dinakaran's aide Mallikarjuna. He added that he didn't know who the money was for.

It is still not clear if the money was given to arrange for better facilities for Dinakaran's aunt Sasikala at the Bengaluru Jail.

D Roopa, former DIG Prisons, Karnataka, in her recent report to his senior, alleged that special facilities were being offered to AIADMK leader Sasikala and even a special kitchen had been set up to provide for quality food.

Following her report, making startling revelations, Roopa was transferred by the Siddahramaiah government to traffic and road safety department.

Prakash said that "since I knew some jail officials", Mallikarjuna also asked him to "arrange meetings between Dinakaran and AIADMK leader Sasikala", who is currently lodged in the Bengaluru jail.

Dinakaran, along with Sukesh, Mallikarjuna, Naresh and Babu, has been accused of bribing the officials of the Election Commission of India in the 'two leaves' party symbol case.

The Delhi Police, on the other hand, say that their investigation is focused on the bribery case and how hawala operators operated the route.
