Kalanidhi Maran, elder brother of former union textiles minister Dayanidhi Maran, against whom the Enforcement Directorate has filed a case, left Chennai on Sunday for Florence, Italy.
It is not known whether they are on a short trip or for an extended holiday. The Marans have not taken their children along with them on Sunday. We are also in the dark whether the kids had already left the country, said a senior Intelligence official. He said the Marans are frequent flyers abroad, especially to Singapore.
Kalanidhi, accompanied by his wife Kaveri and Vijaya Kumar, the managing director of Sun TV, left Chennai airport in a special private aircraft owned by the former.
