Sources said the sleuths were looking for a laptop and a desktop computer and four pen drives that were beleived to have been used by Sasikala. Even as the raids were underway, Jaya TV CEO Vivek Jayaraman arrived at the Poes Garden. Sources said the searches at Poes Garden were conducted after obtaining a court order as no one is staying there.

IT officials have conducted raids in Tamil Nadu since November 9.

Sources in the I-T department then told media that the raids were confined to the room that was used as an office by Jayalalithaa's long time personal secretary Poongundran. "We are hurt because of these IT raids".

The raid came barely a few days after Income Tax department carried out three-day search at more than 140 residential and business premises linked to Sasikala and her family members, known as the "Managurdi mafia" in reference to her ancestral town. Those searches had also led the tax department to several shell companies floated by the Sasikala family.

Heavy security was deployed outside Poes Garden to thwart any untoward incident.

Though Jaya TV had been the mouthpiece of the AIADMK for years, the channel turned a bitter critic of the E Palaniswami government after he joined hands with the rebel group led by O Panneerselvam, eventually edging out Dinakaran and his aunt Sasikala from their posts in the party. Sasikala, her brother VK Dhinakaran and other relatives are accused of amassing unaccounted incomes of Rs 1,430 crore.
