KOCHI: Biju Radhakrishnan said that after the arrest of Saritha Nair in 2013, he travelled from Coimbatore to Thiruvananthapuram via Madurai and Sucheendram in a taxi to meet Chandy. During the meeting, Radhakrishnan showed the video tapes of five persons to Chandy. He did not show the clipping of the sixth person because it was of Chandy himself. Radhakrishnan said he was ready to submit the clippings to the commission.
Radhakrishnan said police had recovered a pen drive containing the video tapes during a search at his residence in Kollam. But they were not submitted before any court.
Radhakrishnan further alleged that the solar and wind projects were worth Rs 500 crore and their profit was agreed to share between Team Solar and Chandy on a 60:40 ratio. Chandy, Radhakrishnan said, promised to allot 70 acres of land at Palakkad Kinfra project area for installing solar panels.
Radhakrishnan added that Chandy had also promised 140 acres of land in Kayilasapara for the wind farm project. In turn, Radhakrishnan handed over Rs 3 crore to Chandy at his residences in Puthupally and Thiruvananthapuram. Later, Radhakrishnan said, Rs 1.5 crore was handed over to Chandy at Ramanilayam in Thrissur. Radhakrishnan said he paid Rs 60 lakh to Chandy directly, and Rs 40 lakh through Joppan.
Radhakrishnan alleged that Chandy assured to bail him out even if he was arrested, and assigned Thomas Kondody to jail and courts to speak with him on several occasions.
