Kochi: The High Court Monday sought explanation on the "unusual" 30 days' remand of Tenny Joppen, former private secretary of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, following his arrest in connection with the solar case.

When Joppen's bail application came up, Justice S S Sateeshchandran directed the Registrar to get explanation of the Pathnamthitta Magistrate on the "unusual" remand period of the accused.

Normally when the accused is produced before court, they are remanded in custody for 15 days.

The court also issued a direction for producing the latest remand report of Joppen.

The scam pertains to alleged fraudulent deals by a firm run by a Saritha Nair and her friend Biju Radhakrishnan by luring clients for solar panel installation scheme.

Joppen was arrested on June 28 based on a petition of businessman Sreedharan Nair, alleging that he had been duped of a huge sum by Nair and Radhakrishnan promising a plant installation deal with Joppen acting as middleman.
