 Justice G Sivarajan Commission which has been investigating the sensational solar scam in Kerala will submit its report on Tuesday.

The Commission will hand over the report to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at 3pmreports Mathrubhumi Online. 

Justice Sivarajan Commission was appointed by the former United Democratic Front (UDF) government in October 2013 to investigate the scam.

The tenure of the Commission was extended twice and will end on Wednesday

Sivarajan is a retired judge of the High Court.

The findings of the Commission are of utmost political importance as the scam had rocked the UDF government led by Oommen Chandy. 

Saritha S Nair - the key accused in the case, has been linked to many influential names in the state, for allegedly receiving money and sexual favours.

The scam is believed to be one of the major reasons for the UDF debacle in 2016 Assembly elections.

The case relates to swindling of lakhs from several people by Sarith S Nair and her live-in partner Biju Radhakrishnan after promising to set up solar panels. Biju Radhakrishan is another accused in the case. 

They were both were business partners of Team Solar Renewable Energy Solutions Private Limited, a Kochi based firm.

They were arrested in October 2013 and in December 2016, the Judicial Magistrate Court in Perumbavoor sentenced the duo to three years in prison and a fine of Rs 10,000 each.

The former CM Oommen Chandy and  some of his cabinet colleagues were accused of taking large amounts of money as part of the deal. 

Chandy had deposed before the Commission in December 2016, saying that the charges  against him were politically motivated.
