Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan on Wednesday said he did not receive any report regarding the legal hurdles on conducting a vigilance inquiry into alleged amassing of wealth by PV Sreenijan, son-in-law of former CJI KG Balakrishan.

"I did not receive any information," was the curt reply of Achuthanandan when reporters sought his reaction to the the opinion of legal advisor to vigilance on unviability of ordering a probe into allegations against Sreenijan.

Legal advisor to Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) had on Monday conveyed to the Home Department that Sreenijan would not come under the definition of public servant under the Prevention of Corruption Act .

Achtuthanandan had last week recommended such a probe following he getting a private complaint.

Chief Minister's recommendation was referred to VACB's legal advisor to examine the legal feasibility of the possible inquiry against Sreenijan.

A former vice president of the state Youth Congress and who unsuccessfully contested the last Assembly polls from Njarakkal segment in Erakulam district, resigned the primary membership of the Youth Congress last week after coming under the cloud of allegations.
