Sources : Jaffar Sait IPS under probe by Enforcement Directorate. Two cases were registered against DMK MP Dr.Jegatharatchagan, and others in the year 2007 for conspiracy, cheating, forgery, etc. for grabbing a land to the extent of 67.69 acres at Chrompet Chennai. 1/n
Now, Jegatharatchagan’s Sree Balaji Medical College stands in this land. This college was caught in a sting operation by ToI in 2009 for collecting 20 lakhs for an MBBS seat. Jegatharatchagan, managed to close this case, with the help of senior police officials, 2/n
few days before CBI was about to take over investigation, following which CBI had to drop the investigation.

Crime Nos. 304 & 305 were registered in Central Crime Branch, Chennai with regard to the Chrompet land in 2007. 3/n
It is alleged that Jegathratchagan had acquired this land in 1995, by forging records with the connivance of bank officials. After this transaction only, Jegathratchagan became a crorepati. 4/n
Interestingly, as per his election affidavits, the value of his properties rose from 5 crores in 2009 to 70 crores in 2011.
Since it was DMK period, Jegath, with the help of some senior police officers managed to close both the FIRs as “Mistake of Fact” on 4 January 2008. 5/n
Besides closure of cases, entire records pertaining to these cases vanished mysteriously from Central Crime Branch, Chennai. Interestingly, Jegathratchagan, merged his political party, Jananayaga Munnetra Kazhagam with DMK, shortly after closure of both these cases. 6/n
After change of government in the year 2011 in TN, the cases were transferred to Crime Branch CID and a petition was filed before the Addl. Sessions Court, Chengalpattu by CB.CID to reopen both the cases and conduct further investigation. 7/n
In its petition to reopen the cases, CB.CID said,

“It could be seen that the allegation for forgery of share certificates and fabrication of documents were not examined by the earlier investigation agency. 8/n
It could be seen that the allegations found in the FIR is for forgery of share certificates. But no documents were seized by CCB to probe the forgery. No efforts were even made to gather material in respect of bank auction in respect of alleged property”. 9/n
Based on this plea, on 11 August 2016, the court ordered re-opening of both the cases and directed CB.CID to conduct further investigation.

Around two months back, Jaffar Sait, IPS, as DGP of Crime Branch CID, closed both the FIRs against 10/n
Jegathratchagan for which he is alleged to have received huge kickbacks from Jegath. Enforcement Directorate which caught hold of the money trail, has commenced a probe, which resulted in his abrupt transfer say highly placed sources. 11/n
The same CB.CID, which sought orders for further investigation, has now closed the FIRs.

ED probe is the only reason for the unusual transfer of Jaffar. 12/n
It is not true that, he has refused to arrest DMK MLA V.Senthil Balaji and hence was transferred. Senthil Balaji’s anticipatory bail petition is pending in Madras HC for more than a week and orders stand reserved.
