Kochi: Kerala’s ruling Congress-led UDF government and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Friday got a reprieve when the Kerala High Court put on hold a lower court order for registering an FIR against him and his cabinet colleague in solar panel scam case.

The petition of Chandy and state Power Minister Aryadan Mohammed came up before Justice P. Ubaid, who put the lower court order on hold for two months.

The second accused in the solar scam case, Saritha Nair levelled bribery allegations against the chief minister on Wednesday. She stated before the inquiry commission that she gave Rs.1.90 crore to a person called Thomas Kuruvilla that was meant for Chandy.

She had also alleged that Mohammed also was given Rs.40 lakh.

It was based on this that activist P.D. Joseph approached the Thrissur Vigilance Court on Wednesday and the judge ordered an FIR to be registered against Chandy and his cabinet colleague.
