Former Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy on Friday alleged that Kerala Congress (B) MLA KB Ganesh Kumar conspired with the solar scam accused Saritha S Nair to bring down the United Democratic Front (UDF) government.

The former CM on Friday, appeared before the Kottarakara Judicial First Class Magistrate in relation to a case filed by former Kollam District Public Prosecutor, Sudhir Jacob alleging Ganesh Kumar of a political conspiracy.

The petitioner argued that in the letter which Saritha had submitted to the Solar Commission, she had added four extra pages which contained the details of UDF leaders who allegedly sexually abused her.

Jacob alleged that in the initial report which was leaked in June 2013, there were only 21 pages whereas the same letter had four extra pages when submitted to the commission in June 2016.

He had said that this was done with the intention of bringing down the UDF government and that Ganesh Kumar, who was frustrated about not being able to come back to the cabinet made her write those extra pages.

Talking to TNM about these allegations made by the petitioner, Saritha S Nair lashed out saying, “First, they said that Ganesh Kumar wrote those extra pages. In that case, why can’t they check if it’s Ganesh’s handwriting?”

“Then they said that Ganesh made me write and add those extra pages. They should know that there are scientific methods and facilities available at the forensic department which will find out whether something is written at different time intervals or at one stretch,” she said.

Saritha also went on to add that, “they should have had the sense to at least check out all this without simply making allegations in the court.”

Talking about the letter, Saritha said that she had written the letter at the Perambavoor police station on July 19, 2013 after she was first taken into the custody on June 2, 2013.

“While in custody, I knew I was being made a scapegoat in the case and that the real culprits are in safe zone and that all evidences will be destroyed while I’m in the custody,” Saritha tells TNM.

She went on to add that in the letter she had included the contact number, the place where she was abused and the names of the leaders who had abused her.
