Alleging that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami and his deputy O Panneerselvam were indulging in "vendetta politics", Mr Dinakaran said, "Poes Garden is a place where our beloved Amma's (Jayalalithaa) lived, it is like a temple".

Sasikala, a close aide of Jayalalitha was living in her house and continued to stay there until she was sent to jail by the Supreme Court.

Sources said the search was for possible unaccounted for wealth owned by Sasikala, who is serving a jail term for corruption.

While the raids were going on, Jaya TV CEO Vivek Jayaraman arrived at the Poes Garden.

Meanwhile, supporters of sidelined AIADMK leader and a nephew of Sasikala, TTV Dhinakaran protested outside the Poes Garden residence.
