Kochi: Solar scam accused Saritha Nair Friday submitted before the Sivarajan Committee the evidence claiming that she had made as many as 130 phone calls to the Cliff House, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s official residence.
She, in the documents submitted before the probe panel, also said she had made phone calls with P.C Vishnunath, MLA, Electricity Minister Aryadan Muhammed and Jikku, former personal staff of Chandy, and Thomas Kuruvila
Saritha also submitted evidence material of the sexual abuse she had to suffer in connection with the case to the probe panel in a sealed cover.
She told the Sivarajan Committee that she had given Rs. 20 lakh to the Police Association.
“I had handed over Rs. 20 lakh to Police Association secretary G.R. Ajith at the Secretariat north block in 2013. However, they didn’t give me the receipt slip,” she said.
“The Police Association had passed a resolution promising the solar panels to be set up at all the police stations in lieu of it. Following that, ADGP Shankar Reddy had issued an order,” said Saritha.
Meanwhile, Vigilance director N. Shankar Reddy said he didn’t issue any order in that regard.
“Based on a minutes from the police headquarters, I had directed all the SPs to examine the possibility of setting up the solar panels at the police stations. None of them had given me any reply on that. No further steps had taken then,” said Shankar Reddy.
“The media reports quoting Saritha Nair in this regard are baseless,” he said.
