Disproportionate assets case: Court rejects Crime Branch chief Thachankary’s discharge plea
Kottayam: The discharge petition filed by Crime Branch ADGP Tomin J Thachankary in connection with the disproportionate assets case was rejected by the Vigilance court.
The court observed that the findings made by Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau were true and that there are clear evidences against him.
Following this, Thachankary will have to face trial and other legal proceedings.
In 2007, the VACB had registered the case against Thachankary for amassing wealth to the tune of Rs 65,70,891 disproportionate to his known sources of income between January 2003 and July 2007. As part of the probe, raids were held at his residence and office.
However, Thachankary had claimed it to be family inheritance.
Meanwhile, it is known that he will move High Court in the case.
For the past six times while considering the case, Thachankary had not turned up at the court.
Activist P D Joseph had filed the complaint against Thachankary.
