Amid AIADMK crisis, concerned citizen files complaint with Chennai Police about MLA's disappearance

As the situation surrounding the splintering AIADMK gets increasingly dramatic, there's a new twist: And this one has nothing to do with VK Sasikala, O Panneerselvam, Governor Vidyasagar Rao, Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi, the late J Jayalalithaa or even her will.

The twist actually concerns party MLA and fisheries department minister D Jayakumar... or rather his absence.

A concerned member of Royapuram constituency filed a complaint in the Chennai Police commissioner's office reporting Jayakumar's absence. The letter below outlines the writer's concern about the MLA's whereabouts:

It may be recalled that on 3 February, Sasikala appointed Jayakumar to a key party post, so it's possible he could be among her group of 'kidnapped' MLAs that is presently believed to be at the Golden Bay resort in Kuvathur. Or he may have just vanished entirely.

It's now upto the police commissioner's office to get to the bottom of things.
