Kerala HC Judge Justice B Kemal Pasha on Monday said Saritha Nair’s statement alleging that the Kerala CM sexually abused her, were politically motivated.

Pasha was hearing Saritha’s petition asking a CBI enquiry in the Solar Scam.

While dismissing the petition, Pasha asked how the accused can ask for a CBI enquiry and it is politics. He also asked her to refrain from wasting the court’s time as there were many serious cases pending.

He also said that the timing of Saritha’s allegations was suspect, since she was petitioning against the CM ahead of the elections.  

This comes after a day Asianet TV put out a letter written by solar-scam-accused Saritha Nair in 2013 claiming that several politicians, including a union minister and CM Oommen Chandy had sexually abused her in the past.

On Sunday, following Asianet’s broadcast of those letters, Saritha admitted on air of writing those letters where she said that she was sexually abused by Kerala CM Oommen Chandy after categorically denying it on more than one occasion in the past.

Recently, the judge had made news when he said that the Muslim Personal Law was discriminatory against women.
