New Delhi, July 17 - A court here on Monday said it will consider a chargesheet against AIADMK Deputy General Secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran's aide Sukesh Chandershekhar in a bribery case on July 25.

Special Judge Poonam Chaudhary also extended the judicial custody of Chandershekhar till July 25, the date fixed for next hearing.

The Delhi Police on July 14 chargesheeted Chandershekhar under various sections of the Indian Penal Code related to forgery of valuable security, forgery for purpose of cheating, making a false document and criminal conspiracy, among others, and under provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Chandershekhar was arrested on April 16.

Police have said that they would file a separate investigation report against Dinakaran and other accused later.

Dinakaran, accused of trying to bribe Election Commission (EC) officials to get the two leaves poll symbol for a party faction led by his aunt V.K. Sasikala, was arrested on April 25. He was granted bail on June 1.

The police said a criminal conspiracy was hatched by Chandershekhar, Dinakaran and others to bribe the Election Commission officials in order to get a favourable order in the adjudication over the two leaves poll symbol.

The money recovered from Chandershekhar was sent by Dinakaran through illegal channels with the help of others, the police alleged.

Mallikarjuna, a long-time friend of Dinakaran, and Naresh Jain, a hawala operator from Delhi, are the other suspects in the case.
