Solar Scam: Kerala Court Orders FIR Against CM


Thiruvananthapuram: A Kerala court on Thursday ordered an FIR against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in the solar scam case. On Wednesday, the prime accused in the solar case Saritha S Nair had targeted Chandy and Power Minister Arayadan Mohammed while deposing before the Justice Sivarajan Commission in Kochi, probing the case.

She alleged that she had paid bribes to the tune of Rs 1.90 crore to a close aide of the Chief Minister and Rs 40 lakh to Mohammed. Chandy, however, alleged “political conspiracy” behind the bribery allegations made against him, blaming a section of the bar owners for it.
