Director General of Police MN Krishnamoorthy will probe the complaint of solar panel scam accused Saritha Nair against Additional Director General of Police K Padmakumar, Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said on Friday.
The Kerala cabinet today deferred a decision on the terms and reference for the judicial probe into the solar panel scam that rocked the state for the past two months and brought the Chief Minister`s office under a cloud.
In an unusual move, the AJM (Narcotics) NV Raju, against whom Kerala HC`s Vigilance Registrar has begun a probe for alleged `procedural lapses` in the Solar panel scam case, urged the Chief Judicial Magistrate to relieve him.
Congress high command is "worried" over the situation caused by the solar panel scam in Kerala with the opposition unrelenting in its agitation against embattled Chief Minister Oommen Chandy demanding his resignation.
A day after he was snubbed by the Congress high command over PCC Chief Ramesh Chennithala`s cabinet entry, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said "status quo" will continue in the party and government till Lok Sabha polls get over.
