A big Gutka scam had surfaced in Tamilnadu recently. Shockingly, a minister, a DGP along with some higher officials were involved in this scam. The CBI have conducted raids in the houses of health minister C. Vijaya Bhaskar, DGP T. Rajendran, and former Commissioner of Police S George along with a few government officials.



In the raids, it became crystal clear that these officials have direct links in the crores of tobacco, and gutka scam. Though the Gutkas were banned in 2013, the sale is still on. The court had ordered for a CBI inquiry when a petitioner filed a case on the illegal sale of Gutka in last April.



During their raids in 2016 in the house of a businessman Madhava Rao, they found a diary in which he mentioned the list of politicians and police officials whom he bribed.



Madhava Rao’s diary reveals that over 40 crores of money was spent on bribing and the tobacco suppliers have cheated the government by skipping t pay the taxes worth Rs 250 crores.
