THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In addition to recommending a criminal probe into the sexual harassment charges levelled against Oommen Chandy, Aryadan Mohammed and fellow UDF leaders, the Solar Commission wanted the government to take action based on the PC Act against whom corruption and illegal gratification have been alleged. “The Commission found Oommen Chandy, members of his personal staff Tenny Joppen, Jikkumon Jacob and gunman Salim Raj helped the accused Saritha and her company to dupe customers,” Pinarayi said, reading out the report in the House.
Several of the UDF ministers and leaders allegedly accepted bribes and sexual gratification to extend support to Team Solar in duping the public, the Commission said, and recommended the registration of cases under the IPC, CrPC and PC Act. The report found wrongdoing on the part of former ministers Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, Aryadan Mohammed, A P Anil Kumar, Adoor Prakash, former Union Minister K C Venugopal, Hibi Eden MLA and Jose K Mani MP, among others.
