KOCHI: Solar scam accused Biju Radhakrishnan filed a petition seeking time until February 15, 2016, for producing evidence, including sex tapes, against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and various other politicians, though the Justice G Sivarajan Judicial Commission probing the case had set Thursday as the deadline for producing the same.
Biju in his petition stated that there were three sets of CDs containing the evidence, and that he would need at least 2 months’ time to produce them.
According to him, one set of CDs are abroad, and he needs more time to produce them. Another set of CDs were seized by the police when he was arrested in Coimbatore, while the third set is kept at place that is far away from Ernakulam.
He said the person to whom he had handed over that CDs did not know about their contents.
According to him, since some of the CDs contained documents related to the Solar scam, the police would get a chance to file case against him under Section-201 of the IPC (causing disappearance of evidence of offence).
According to Biju, after the Commission ordered him to produce the evidence, he could go out of the jail only on two occasions. Ever since news about the evidence appeared in the media, Biju has been under strict security cover. The Intelligence Wing has issued a warning that his life was under severe threat.
Since he is lodged in jail, it is difficult for him to produce the evidence before the Commission, which is why he sought additional time, when he appeared before the Commission last month.
Biju in his petition also requested the Commission to conduct polygraph, narco-analysis and brain mapping test on him and co-accused Saritha S Nair.
He further challenged the persons, against whom he had raised allegations, to undergo polygraph and impotency test.
He also sought permission to cross examine Saritha, Shalu Menon, Adv Fenny Balakrishnan, P A Madhavan MLA and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy when they appear before the Commission for giving statement.
“The Commission should retrieve details of the mobile calls made by Saritha around 11.30 am on November 12, 2015,” he said.
The Commission, meanwhile, decided to consider the petition after the team assigned by it returns after recovering the evidence from Coimbatore.
