Kochi: Businessman Abraham Kalamannil Friday deposed before the Sivarajan Commission that he had never met solar scam accused Saritha S Nair.
“I didn’t know Saritha. I had never met her. Her aide came to see me for a NRI seat at my medical college. We never discussed solar issue at that time,” Abraham Kalamannil said.
“Her aide had accepted Rs 50,000. Last year also the same person came to see me for a seat. I know Chief Minister Oommen Chandy for the past 30 years,” he said.
However, the solar commission asked him whether he wants to hear the dialogues of the audio tape produced by Saritha.
Saritha had submitted before the commission evidence containing video footage of her meeting with businessman Abraham Kalamannil. Saritha said Kalamannil had asked her to destroy the evidence.
