ControversiesKidnapping case against Vetri
In 2014, the Madras High Court demanded an answer to a plea from a businessman who said his 28-year-old wife and 5-year-old daughter were kidnapped and needed to be rescued. Velivela Rakesh from Kodambakkam stated in his plea that Vetri Duraisamy from CIT Nagar, a politically influential person, abducted his wife Sowmya and daughter Naisha. After reviewing the plea, Justices S Tamilvanan and T Mathivanan instructed the concerned authorities to provide a response by 22 December 2014. According to Rakesh, his wife Sowmya had befriended Duraisamy, who later kidnapped her and their child. [2]The New Indian Express

Raids by income tax officials
In 2016, tax officials began inspecting properties linked to Natham R Viswanathan, a former minister, and Vetri, due to suspicions of unpaid taxes and their possible involvement in financial misconduct related to a businessman before the Tamil Nadu Assembly election on 16 May 2016. The investigations were triggered by evidence found at the businessman Anbunathan's place, indicating he might have ties with Viswanathan and Vetri Duraisamy. The tax officials searched three of Vetri's properties, including a farmhouse. They also conducted searches at various locations of a large jewelry chain and a well-known hospital across the country to investigate potential tax evasion. [3]Business Standard

Some Lesser Known Facts About Vetri Duraisamy

  • In 2024, when his car went into a river in Himachal Pradesh, local police found some human remains near the Satluj river. The chief police officer there noted they discovered what seemed to be a human brain, possibly belonging to the missing man. The police observed that neither the survivor nor the driver, who died in the crash, had head injuries, leading them to suspect that the missing person, Vetri, might have died.
  • The police called in navy divers to assist in the search for Vetri in the river and were determined to locate him. Despite three days of searching by NDRF, police, and home guard teams without success, they continued the search.
  • Saidai Duraisamy, Vetri’s father, promised Rs. 1 crore to whoever could locate his son. He also reached out to locals and authorities to help share this information, hoping that someone from the surrounding tribal communities would have valuable information.
