Why  Kanimozhi house was raided?

The Election Commission (EC), after getting the approval of President Ram Nath Kovind, countermanded the election to Vellore Lok Sabha seat follwoing seizure of large sums of money. DMK treasurer Duraimurugan's son Kathir Anand is the DMK candidate for the Vellore Lok Sabha seat, from whose house, college and godown, cash allegedly meant for distributing to voters, were seized following raids by the Income-Tax department.

Meanwhile, officials of the Income Tax department visited the house of DMK leader Kanimozhi to "verify allegations of cash being stashed there." "Crores and crores of rupees are kept in the house of Tamilisai Soundararajan's residence, why no raids there? Modi is using IT, CBI, judiciary and now Election Commission to interfere in the elections. They are doing this as they fear losing," DMK chief Stalin said.
