The Kerala High Court on Monday issued notices to the state government and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on a writ petition seeking a CBI probe into six criminal cases registered against M K Kuruvila, a Bangalore-based businessman, who had raised allegations about the involvement of the Chief Minister’s relatives and staff in the solar scam.
Justice Harul ul-Rashid issued the notice when Kuruvila’s petition came up for hearing on Monday.
The industrialist, M K Kuruvila, had alleged in his petition before the court that he was being framed in criminal cases which had been registered against him after he lodged complaints against certain persons who hold immense influence with high offices of the government.
Kuruvila also expressed apprehension that the police investigation into the case would not be fair as the persons against whom he levelled allegations were highly influential.
He also pointed out that the police had registered cheating cases against him on the basis of six complaints filed before the Irinjalakkuda and Thrissur courts.
