The Vigilance court here on Thursday directed the Vigilance to conduct a comprehensive reprobe in the case related to alleged corruption in installing signboards on highways and other major roads.

It also dismissed the plea of the Vigilance to withdraw the case.  The court pronounced the order on a petition filed by advocate P Nagaraj who alleged that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and others were influencing the case and the Vigilance had sought to withdraw the case under their influence. Earlier, the Vigilance had found corruption worth Rs 15 lakh in installing signboards on the NHs and roads in the state.

However, later it had submitted a plea to withdraw the case stating that the contractor had erected the signboards from his own fund.
