Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday set aside the findings of Lokayukta against former state Transport Minister N Sakthan.

Justice B P Ray, while allowing the petition filed by Sakthan, said the findings of the Lokayukta were untenable.

A complaint had been filed against Sakthan when he was then transport minister during the erstwhile UDF government in 2004-06 over appointment of conductors and drivers in the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation.

Charges of irregularities were also raised in the purchase of tread rubber.

The Lokayukta had prima facie found Sakthan guilty of charges and recommended further action against him.
