According to an affidavit filed in the Madras High Court by the Chennai Commissioner of Police, K. Vijayakumar, who appeared before Justice N.V. Balasubramanian today, the police had also requested passport authorities to impound the passport of Rajarathinam and his wife, Prabha.
Noting that the accused was reported to be in England, he said the Commissioner of Income Tax had also been approached for the last and latest tax assessment report filed by the warrantee (Rajarathinam) to initiate action under Section 83 of CrPC. Mr. Vijayakumar said the Inspector-General of Registration had been asked to furnish details of the property registered in the name of Rajarathinam throughout Tamil Nadu. A reminder had been sent to expedite the exercise in the Income Tax and Registration departments
Submitting that the accused had obtained duplicate passport prior to his escape, the Commissioner said two special teams had been formed to track down and collect information on associates of the warrantee.
He also undertook to inform the court of the progress in the investigation as and when required. Mr. Justice Balasubramanian had summoned the Commissioner and asked him to file an affidavit detailing the steps taken to track the whereabouts of Rajarathinam and arrest him in connection with the Rs. 45-crore fraud.
Declared as a proclaimed offender in March last year, Rajarathinam has a warrant, which is valid until his arrest requiring no periodical extension, pending against him.
