Solar scam accused threatens 'sleepless nights' to politicians

By Ians

Kochi, March 3: Saritha Nair, key accused in the solar panel scam in Kerala and now out on bail, Monday said she will give "sleepless nights" to people involved in the case.

"I will certainly meet you (the media) and I will certainly give sleepless nights to all the politicians who gave me sleepless nights. I will reveal everything very soon to you," Nair told reporters here.

She also said that Congress legislator A.P. Abdulla Kutty used to regularly call her and send her SMSes "after I met him at a function in Kannur with regards to promoting solar power".

The solar panel scam has been making headlines in Kerala since June last year, when Nair was arrested and later her live-in partner Biju Radhakrishnan was also taken into custody, after they were found to have duped numerous people who gave money to the couple after being promised agencies for solar panels and windmills.

Kutty, however, denied the allegation and said Nair has become a tool in the hands of his political adversaries.

"This is an allegation meant to finish my political career and am prepared for any probe in this," said Kutty, who dumped the Communist Party of India-Marxist in 2009 and joined the Congress.

Nair gave a clean chit to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, saying it was unnecessary to drag his name.

Three staff members of Chandy lost their jobs after they were found to maintain close links with Nair.

Ever since news of the scam broke out, the media has come up with juicy tales of Nair's close links with ministers (both from the state and the centre) and politicians.
