Chennai, Feb 1 (IANS) The residence and business premises of former DMK minister N.K.K.P. Raja were raided Wednesday morning for allegedly possessing wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income, an official said.

The raids were conducted at several places in Erode around 340 km from here.
