Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) [India], September 26 (ANI): The Commission headed by Justice G. Sivarajan, which probed the multi-crore scam on Tuesday submitted its final report to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

The report was handed over to the Chief Minister around 3:00 pm earlier today.

Justice Sivarajan's Commission was appointed by the former United Democratic Front (UDF) government led by Oommen Chandy in October 2013 to investigate the scam.

Saritha S. Nair, the main accused in the case, has been linked to many influential names in Kerala, for allegedly receiving money and sexual favours.

The case relates to swindling of lakhs from several people by Sarith S Nair and her live-in partner Biju Radhakrishnan after promising to set up solar panels. They were both were business partners of Team Solar Renewable Energy Solutions Private Limited, a Kochi based firm.

While, Radhakrishan is another accused in the case.

However, they were arrested in October 2013 and in December 2016, the Judicial Magistrate Court in Perumbavoor sentenced the duo to three years in prison and a fine of Rs 10,000 each.

During investigation, the former Chief Minister and some of his cabinet colleagues were accused of taking large amounts of money as part of the deal. Chandy had deposed before the Commission in December 2016, saying that the charges against him were politically motivated.(ANI)
