THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Charges of rape have been raised against Alappuzha MP and Congress leader K C Venugopal in the Sivarajan commission report. According to the report, Saritha S Nair had stated before the commission she had approached Venugopal who was a MoS for Power to apply for the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) Channel's partnership. Relevant documents and bribe as demanded by him had been handed over to his driver Nagarajan at the residence of the Minister in Alappuzha.
