Thiruvananthapuram: Investigation into the alleged corruption in the implementation of the Rs.2.56 billion pollution-control and expansion project in the state-owned Travancore Titanium Products Ltd has been completed, Vigilance informed Thiruvananthapuram court Tuesday.

The Vigilance will submit the report in the court in two weeks. It has now been sent to the Superintendent of Police for assessment.

The government had earlier drawn the court’s displeasure for the delay in completing the probe. The court had also warned of action against the investigation officials if the report is not submitted in time.

The Communist-led opposition Left Democratic Front had demanded resignation of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy alleging that Chandy had shown undue haste in awarding the project to Mecon Ltd, a federal government undertaking, before the assembly polls in 2006. The Opposition alleged that Chandy had cleared the project before ascertaining the technical and financial feasibility of the project and after taking away the pollution control portfolio from the then health minister K K Ramachandran Master, who opposed the project.

The LDF alleged that this was intended to favour the companies involved in the project.
