Chennai: AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran on Wednesday virtually questioned the need for the lookout notice issued by the Delhi Police in a bribery case, saying as his passport "is in court" for 20 years how could he flee the country.

"My passport is in court for 20 years. How can I escape from India," he told reporters here.

He was apparently referring to the pending FERA cases against him in a court here in connection with which he has surrendered his passport.

The Delhi Police issued the lookout notice against Dinakaran in connection with the case registered against him for allegedly attempting to bribe an EC official to get the coveted 'two-leaves' symbol for his faction.

The "preventive" action comes in the wake of inputs that Dinakaran was an NRI and could try to flee, police said.

The notice was issued at a time when Dinakaran has been virtually ousted as Deputy General Secretary of the V K Sasikala faction of AIADMK following a revolt by senior ministers.

Earlier, the Delhi Crime Branch Police had arrested an alleged middleman, Sukesh Chandrashekhar, from a hotel in the national capital in connection with the bribery case.

Sukesh had claimed he had told Dinakaran that he will get a favourable verdict from the Election Commission in the party symbol case.
