Kannur: Congress leader K. Sudhakaran, MP, on Tuesday said the refusal of four Kerala High Court judges to hear the revision petition challenging the discharge of CPI-M State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan in the Lavalin case should be probed.
“A probe should be conducted over the matter. I’ve written a letter to the Chief Justice,” K. Sudhakaran told reporters here.
Justice N.K Balakrishnan is the fourth judge in the High Court, who recused from hearing the case. Earlier, Justice ML Francis Joseph, Justices Thomas P Jospeh and K Harilal had recused themselves from hearing the applications against Vijayan.
The CBI had filed the review petition Friday at the Kerala High Court and stated that the CBI court did not go in-depth into the agreement that was signed by Vijayan with the Canadian company, SNC Lavalin, in 1997 for renovating three power plants in the state.
