A public interest litigation has been filed in the Vigilance Court, here, seeking an investigation into the alleged role of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan and other Congress Ministers and MLAs in the solar scam and their links with the solar scam accused Saritha S Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan.

Considering the PIL filed by Malayala Vedi president George Vattukulam, Vigilance Judge K Haripal ordered the additional legal advisor of the government to submit the response of the State Government in the case on Tuesday.

In his petition, Vattukulam said the solar scam accused Saritha Nair and her estranged husband Biju Radhakrishnan, the prime accused in the scam, conned a large number of people of millions of rupees by promising to set up solar panels. They used the men and machinery of Chief Minister’s office for the purpose. They also made use of the influence with the Chief Minister’s office to publicise their company as a state government undertaking.

A number of senior Congress leaders earned easy money through the solar company floated by the accused, he alleged. They were also in constant touch with Saritha S Nair. “A police investigation is not suffice to prove all the charges levelled against the accused and the legislators,” he said.
