THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The vigilance director has ordered a quick verification against KPCC president K Sudhakaran based on a complaint lodged by his former driver, Prasanth Babu.

He has alleged that Sudhakaran had indulged in financial malpractices during the construction of the District Congress Committee (DCC) office and acquired assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Vigilance director DGP Sudesh Kumar ordered a probe into the charges and directed a vigilance team to submit a report soon. The preliminary probe will be mainly to check whether there is any veracity in the complaint by Prasanth Babu and further investigation will be decided based on the preliminary report.

The complaint was lodged at a time when Sudhakaran and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had locked horns over past incidents that occurred during their college days. The complaint pointed out that Sudhakaran had indulged in financial malpractices in connection with the construction of a DCC office at Kannur and misappropriation of funds from K Karunakaran trust.
