Solar scandal: Biju Radhakrishnan arrested

Thiruvananthapuram: The police have arrested Biju Radhakrishnan, one of the accused in the solar scandal case, from Coimbatore on Monday.

Biju has been absconding ever since his partner Saritha S Nair was arrested by Perumbavoor police in a case of duping many people of their money through their illegal company called ‘Team Solar Renewable Energy Solutions’.

The police had conducted raids on the offices of the company, Biju’s house and Saritha’s office at Tripunithura on Sunday.

Meanwhile a court on Monday extended the judicial custody of Saritha till July 1.

The arrest of Biju is expected to unfold the ambiguities in the scandal which has been causing stalling of assembly proceedings as several political leaders are also accused of being involved in the case.
