THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala has come up with a serious allegation about the Chief  Minister’s office sending a Home Department officer to the residence of Justice G Sivarajan after he had submitted the report for making corrections. He alleged the CM’s private secretary M V Jayarajan was in touch with the judge, and it should be dug out.

Chennithala was on his legs soon after Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan urged Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan to expunge a sentence from his speech while tabling the report and Action Taken Memorandum on the findings, which had stated the constitution of the probe team. However, North Zone DGP Rajesh Diwan was retained as the probe team chief.

“After declaring a team, why was it dropped?” the Opposition Leader asked and fired further.  “Why was an official sent to Justice Sivarajan after the report was submitted to the Chief Minister? It was for making corrections in the report,” he said. “I’m making the accusation with responsibility. The telephone call details of Jayarajan should be scanned,” he said.

‘SIT tried to save Chandy’

T’Puram: The Justice G Sivarajan Commission has come down on the Special Investigation team (SIT) which probed the Solar scam for trying to save the then Chief Minister Oommen Chandy. The Commission took serious note of Saritha’s allegation that IG Padmakumar had harassed her at an apartment in Kaloor after inviting her for conciliatory talks.  

IG M R Ajith Kumar, former Commissioner of Police, Kochi City, was also allegedly involved in phone sex with her besides sending SMSs and making online calls.The commission has called for department-level action against the  secretary of Kerala Police Association G R Ajith for alleged misconduct and indiscipline. The Commission pointed out the SIT had in dubious ways tried to exonerate Chandy.
