CM of Kerala interferes in ‘bar bribery scandal’

Sharing is caring!

Chief minister Oommen Chandy allegedly “interfered” in the probe into the bar bribery scandal involving Kerala Finance Minister and key Congress ally K M Mani. The investigation, based on government records and interviews with key officials, shows that the state Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau, the agency in charge of the probe, watered down its final report and gave a clean chit to Mani.

This report, submitted to the Vigilance court in July 2015, was rejected last month by the Vigilance court which criticized the bureau for not filing a charge-sheet against Mani and asked for “further investigation.” Today, the Kerala High Court upheld the Vigilance court’s decision.
