The Income Tax (I-T) department on 9 November raided the premises of Jaya TV and Dr Namadhu MGR, a Tamil newspaper, here.
This was conducted after reports of alleged tax evasion by the channel and newspaper surfaced.
Jaya TV, which is considered as the mouthpiece of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), was founded by late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. However, the channel is now controlled by former party general secretary VK Sasikala's family members.
Further details are awaited.
