Clean chit for Mani, no proof to prosecute him, says vigilance

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: There is not enough evidence to arraign former finance minister K M Mani in the bar scam case, said the report submitted by vigilance S P Sukesan at the vigilance court in the capital city. The further probe conducted was not able to find necessary proofs to indict Mani.

The report has also stated that as there is no enough evidences, further steps against Mani should be cancelled.  Statements justifying that he had accepted a bribe of Rs one crore has not been obtained in the investigation. There is no proof for Mani accepting bribe nor asking for it.  Not only that, there is inconsistency in the statements and phone dialogues. Some corrections have been made in the disc produced by bar hotel association working president Biju Ramesh and so it need not be examined, said the vigilance.
