Solar scam: HC makes sharp observations against Chandy govt

In a huge embarrassment to Congress-led UDF Government, Kerala high court on Tuesday made sharp critical observations about the probe in solar panel scam but chief minister Oommen Chandy ruled out his resignation over the development as demanded by LDF opposition.

Considering separate pleas related to the scam, two benches of the High Court expressed dissatisfaction at the probe and sought to know from the prosecutor if the government was trying for some sort of a cover-up. The judge also raised questions about production of key accused Saritha Nair in a magistrate court on Monday despite her plea to allow her to give a written statement in a Kochi court.

Another judge V K Mohan, while considering a scam-related plea by businessman M K Kuruvila, sought to know from the prosecutor if an inquiry was not required to find out whether the chief minister was aware of the cheating.
