Thiruvananthapuram: Former Land Revenue Commissioner T.O Sooraj Saturday said he was ready to appear for a polygraph test.
“I will convey the court tomorrow my willingness to appear for the polygraph test on Monday. I earlier stayed away from the test owing to the health reasons,” Sooraj told reporters.
“The truth will come out in the open,” he said.
Sooraj was interrogated by the CBI yesterday in connection with the Kalamassery land-grab case.
The IAS officer, who was also the PWD Secretary, was suspended in November last year for allegedly amassing wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income.
When he was the Land Revenue Commissioner, Sooraj, had in a September 4, 2012 order cancelled mutation of property in the name of N A Shariffa and others who were the original owners of 98 cents of land in Kalamassery.
Last week, the Kerala High Court had set aside his order.
Allegations had been levelled against Sooraj that he had cleared revenue procedures to help the accused, who are reported to be his relatives, grab land worth crores of rupees.
Sooraj had denied all charges and said he acted based on reports from other officials.
