Tenny Joppan, former personal assistant of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, on Thursday approached the Kerala High Court, seeking bail in a cheating case in connection with the solar panel scam.
Joppan was arrested from Chengannur on the basis of a complaint filed by Sreedharan Nair before the Konni police station, earlier.
The petitioner had complained that Joppan, in association with Sarita S Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan, had cheated him of Rs 40 lakh, promising to set up a solar power plant at his company in Palakkad. Pathanamthitta Judicial First Class Magistrate had dismissed the bail plea of Joppan. According to Joppan, he is not named in the complaint and no specific allegation is attributed to him.
