Solar panel scam: Sivarjan Commission submits report

Covai Post Network

The Justice G. Sivarajan Commission that probed the multi-crore Kerala solar panel scam involving the former Chief Minster Oomen Chandy, submitted its report to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday, a day ahead of the deadline.

Later talking to reporters, Justice Sivarajan refused to divulge the details of the four-volume report. “It has been submitted to the Chief Minster and he will inform the media about it,” he said.

The Chief Minister later informed the media that he would give out the details after going through the report.

The commission was appointed by the previous Oomen Chandy Government following allegations about duping of several people of crores of rupees by one Sarita Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan by offering solar panel solutions. The two had reportedly canvassed business by using top level names including that of Oomen Chandy.

A solar company Team Solar (owned by Sarita and Biju) was accused of allegedly collecting advance amounts from large number of people and investors by offering to make them business partners, or in the guise of installing alternate sources of energy and failed to do so.

Five persons including Sarita, Chandy’s personal aide Tenny Joppan, Biju Radhakrishnan and actor Shalu Menon were arrested in connection with the scam. There are 30 cases pending against the Sarita and Biju in different courts in connection with the case.
