Following the directions by the state Information minister K C Joseph, a probing team enquired into the allegations against Feroz and submitted the report Wednesday. According to reports, the latest action is based on the findings in the report.

Medical College police station here had registered a case in 2009 against Feroz along with Saritha Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan for cheating a person of Rs 40.2 lakh.
