Chennai, July 26 (IANS) Tamil Nadu’s vigilance department Tuesday raided the houses of former state intelligence chief M.S. Jaffer Sait, a bureaucrat’s son and others in a graft case.

Officials of the directorate of vigilance and anti-corruption (DVAC) raided the Chennai homes of Additional Director General of Police Jaffer Sait, senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer K. Rajamanickam’s son Durga Prasad, and others on a complaint of irregularities in allotment of land by the Tamil Nadu Housing Board (TNHB).

In a statement here, the DVAC said a case has been registered under the Prevention of Corruption Act against Sait and others based on a written complaint. It raided a total of nine premises.
