THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The vigilance Thursday obtained legal advice to order a quick verification against Minister E P Jayarajan on charges of nepotism. The vigilance will inform the court when the public interest litigation plea for a quick verification is considered. If a probe is ordered then Jayajan will have to step down.
A senior advocate of the vigilance reached the vigilance headquarters in the morning and handed over the legal advice to DGP Jacob Thomas. If the allegation is proved true, then a detailed investigation would be held against the minister.
