Kollam: Kottarakkara Chief Judicial Magistrate court on Wednesday rejected the plea filed by the police team seeking the custody of Biju Radhakrishnan, one of the main accused in the solar scam who has also been accused of killing his first wife.
The court, however, allotted a day to the police to question him in the jail. It has also allowed the police to register his arrest in the solar scam.
Biju, who was arrested from Coimbatore on Monday, has been remanded into judicial custody for 14 days. He has been lodged in the Kottarakkara sub-jail.
Biju’s first wife Reshmi was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the bathroom of her house on February 4, 2006. Initially, Biju said his wife collapsed in the bathroom and had a natural death. However, the relatives of Reshmi raised suspicion over the death, as she had complained earlier of a troubled relationship with Biju.
Meanwhile, the police on Tuesday informed the court that Biju had confessed to killing Reshmi.
