Kerala Vigilance Department will question former Excise Minister K Babu on Monday in the bar-bribery scam that rocked the previous UDF government.
According to reports, the vigilance is set to question K Babu at its office in Ernakulam, based on a complaint filed by businessman VM Radhakrishnan.
In his complaint, Radhakrishnan alleged that the former minister was involved in misusing his position to issue bar-licences to the tune of Rs 100 crores.
After a previous vigilance team headed by SP R Nishanthini submitted a report citing lack of evidence against Babu, VM Radharakrishnan lodged a fresh complaint, once the the LDF government assumed power.
A vigilance team had -in September- recorded bar hotel owner Radhakrishnanâ€™s statements.
Radhakrishnan had then provided the investigating agency with documents that pointed to alleged fund-raising by the bar hotel owners to pay Babu for issue of the said licences.
