Kerala HC dismisses accused Saritha Nair's plea for CBI probe into solar scam
The Kerala High Court asked how an accused can demand a CBI inquiry in a case.

The Kerala High Court on Monday dismissed a plea filed by Saritha Nair, who is an accused in the solar scam, seeking a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

While the accused sought a CBI investigation into the solar scam, the court maintained that it does not want any politics since the state is slated to go for Assembly elections.

The court also asked how an accused can demand a CBI inquiry in a case, raising questions about the credibility of Saritha Nair.

This comes a day after the accused had, in a purported letter, alleged that she was sexually abused by Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, who dismissed the charges terming them as "conspiracy".

Saritha had told a TV channel that she had written the letter while she was in police custody. She said that she wanted to give the letter to the Magistrate but could not do so.

The solar panel scam pertains to alleged duping of several persons to the tune of crores of rupees by Saritha and her accomplice Biju Radhakrishnan by offering solar panel solutions.
