NEW DELHI: Delhi court has sought report from Delhi police over solar scam accused Saritha S Nair’s allegation that she had handed over bribe to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in New Delhi. Delhi Tis Hazari court sought the report based on the petition filed by RSS worker Shine Sasidharan.
The plea was for inquiring into the allegation that as per the chief minister’s direction she had handed over the money to his aide Thomas Kuruvila at Chandni Chauk in New Delhi. The court also gave time till March 31 for submitting the report.
Saritha had deposed before the Solar Commission that she had handed over Rs 1.10 crore to Kuruvila at the parking area of the Chandni Chowk mall.
The petitioner has pleaded for filing case against Oommen Chandy, Thomas Kuruvila and Saritha S Nair under Prevention of Corruption Act. “The conspiracy was hatched at Kerala house and the case should be handed over to a Central agency as it linked more than one state. The plea was made to the court as no action was taken on the complaint submitted to the police,” the petitioner said in his petition.
