Earlier in 2015, Dayalu and 18 others, including DMK MP Kanimozhi and former Telecom Minister A Raja, faced a trial in a case in which Enforcement Directorate (ED) had alleged that Rs 200 crore illegal gratification was routed to Kalaignar TV through an indirect way by promoters of Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd (STPL).
Previously a doctor had in 2015 told a special CBI court that Ammal could
not be involved in a money laundering case as she has been suffering from
Alzheimer’s and other age-related diseases for several years. Dr P Gopal, who
had been treating Ammal for three decades, had said “In 2012, it was noticed
that she was suffering from behavioral changes and experts were called in and
investigations proved that she was suffering from Alzheimer’s and so she was
taken to NIMHANS (National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences) in
Bangalore where they diagnosed as above and treatment was started”.
