Other accused were charged with criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and destruction of evidence under the IPC and other provisions of the PC Act.

Police said a criminal conspiracy was hatched by Chandrashekhar, Dhinakaran and others to bribe Election Commission officials. The money recovered from Chandrashekhar was sent by Dhinakaran through illegal channels with the help of others, police alleged.
