Triple murder probe: Clean chit to Chennithala
Thiruvananthapuram: A Vigilance probe has
found that there is no evidence that KPCC President Ramesh
Chennithala had tried to shield accused in a triple murder
The probe by State Vigilance and Anti-corruption bureau was
ordered by the previous LDF government based on a complaint
that Chennithala accepted a "huge amount" as bribe to save the
accused, who ran a private chit fund, of murdering a staff
member of the firm at Kannichikulangara in Alappuzha district
The allegations that the accused had planned to purchase
45.3 acres of land worth about Rs eight crores for Chennithala
was found to be untrue, the Chief Minister`s office, citing
the Vigilance report, said.
Though the Vigilance had submitted its report in March last
year itself, the LDF government did not make it public, the
Chit fund staff member Ramesh was killed when the car in
which he was travelling was hit by a truck on the National
Highway in Kannichikulagara. Two other persons who were
travelling in the car were also killed.
Following investigation, the accused were convicted and
sentenced for murder and conspiracy.
