The Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption on Thursday carried out raids at the residence of former Tamil Nadu minister TM Anbarasan at Kundrathur near in Chennai in connection with a disproportionate assets complaint, police said.

Anbarasan was the labour minister in the previous DMK government.

The DVAC had on September 27 raided the premises of K Ponmudi, now in jail, in Chennai, Villupuram and Puducherry on "specific information" that he had allegedly accumulated assets disproportionate to his known sources of income when he was the higher education minister in the previous DMK regime.

Ponmudi was arrested in Chennai on August 31 in a land grabbing case.

Former ministers Veerapandi S Arumugam, KN Nehru and NKKP Raja were also arrested on land grabbing charges in the crackdown launched by the Jayalalithaa government on land grabbing.
