An inquiry commission under Justice G Sivarajan, which was set up by the previous United Democratic Front government led by Chandy himself, has found not just Chandy but also his home minister guilty of suppressing facts of the case.

Judicial Commission’s observation means that Chandy will have to go through a vigilance probe, announced by chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan. He had also said that a criminal case will be filed against former home minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan for abetting the crime.
