Kochi: Solar scam accused Biju Radhakrishnan Thursday morning reportedly told the solar commission that he made his revelations against the chief minister with the consent of Saritha S Nair.
“My counsel Mohankumar had talked with Saritha over the phone many times in the last two days,” he deposed before the panel.
Meanwhile, the Solar Commission asked Biju Radhakrishnan, the main accused in the solar scam, to submit the documents supporting his allegations against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other ministers by December 10.
Justice Sivarajan, who is heading the panel, refused his request seeking 15 days time to submit his evidences.
Biju Radhakrishnan had Wednesday deposed before the judicial commission probing solar scam that a bribe of Rs 5.50 crore was paid to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.
Solar scam pertains to cheating of several persons worth crores of rupees by Saritha and Radhakrishnan by offering solar panel solutions. The company was allegedly floated by Saritha S Nair and Radhakrishnan. Saritha is the first accused in the case.
The duo allegedly canvassed business by using high-level names including that of Chandy.
The case that came to light in June 2013 took a political turn as three of Chandy's staff members were forced to quit and one of them, Tenny Joppen, was arrested for alleged link with Saritha.
The scam had rocked the state and LDF opposition had launched an agitation pressing for Chandy's resignation, but the government did not relent.
