Kochi: The state government has denied permission to launch a vigilance investigation into the Brahmapuram fire mishap based on the complaint alleging the contract company had submitted fake documents to participate in the tender proceedings.

As per sources, Kerala government has not granted approval for the probe against the contract company, which has a CPM regional leader as its managing partner.

Currently, Star Constructions company holds the contract for disposal of biodegradable wastes in Brahmapuram. As per the contract conditions, the company has to set up facilities to dispose of 250 tonne wastes.

The basic qualification to participate in the tender was three years of experience in handling such waste. Star Constructions had submitted the experience certificate of handling wastes in Ottapalam and Malappuram municipalities in order to partake in the tender proceedings.

In November 2022, the Vigilance Court in Muvattupuzha ordered a quick probe into the complaint alleging that the company had submitted fake documents to take part in the tender. However, the investigation has not made any progress so far.

Although there is a standing court order, the state government’s approval is mandatory to begin the probe. Following this, the vigilance approached the government, but did not receive any favourable response.

Meanwhile, it was revealed the other day that the managing partner of the company is a local CPM leader.
