Chennai: Lottery kingpin Santiago Martin and his brother-in-law Benjamin have been arrested by the Salem city police in Tamil Nadu on charges of land grabbing. The Madras High Court had earlier ordered action against him in the case but the previous DMK government sat on the order.

Martin is known to be close to Karunanidhi. The full extent of the land grabbing allegations against Alagiri's family was revealed by CNN-IBN on Wednesday with documentary evidence. CNN-IBN accessed documents to show how Alagiri's wife Kanthi bought temple land worth over Rs 20 crore for just Rs 85 lakh from a man facing over 50 criminal cases.
