THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Even as the investigation into the bar bribery case entered the final stages, the leaked reports of the polygraph test confirmed that Biju Ramesh’s driver Ambili was truthful while stating that he was a witness to handing over money to Finance Minister K M Mani.  According to the five page report of the Director of Forensic Science and Laboratory, Ambili has confirmed that he had seen bar owner Rajkumar Unni handing over money to Mani.

Of the 15 questions that were asked, Ambili is truthful to 13 but no significant inference could be drawn in two questions, said the report signed by Dr Pradeep Saji K, Assistant director (Polygraph).

As per the report that was leaked out on Tuesday, Ambili was truthful when answering if he had seen the money being handed over to Mani in plastic bags. To questions related to going along with Unni to the official residence of Mani on April 2, 2014, and handing over the money to Unni at the cliff house, he said ‘Yes’.

Ambili also confirmed that he was present on April 1, 2014, when Rs 35 lakh was counted and the amount was entrusted in the house of Sreevalsan.

However, the report says that Ambili could not answer whether he went to Sreevalsan’s house on the direction of Rajkumar Unni and brought back the covers containing the money.
