Thiruvananthapuram: The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau has submitted its probe report to the ADGP stating that there were irregularities in the appointment and promotion of V.A Arun Kumar, son of Opposition leader V.S Achuthanandan, to the post of IHRD Assistant Director.
The Vigilance, in its report, has stated that V.A Arun Kumar was appointed as IHRD Assistant Director by flouting the norms. The Vigilance, however, has found that there were not enough grounds to establish the charges of irregularities in the appointment as the ICT Academy Director.
Arun Kumar was appointed as the Assistant Director of the IHRD during the tenure of the LDF government. After coming to power, the Oommen Chandy government had ordered a vigilance probe into the charges in June 2011.
An Assembly panel chaired by V D Satheesan had found that the appointments of V.A Arun Kumar were irregular. The Vigilance probe was ordered after the Assembly panel submitted its report.
