Thiruvananthapuram: The preliminary report filed by the Vigilance stated that Azhikode MLA KM Shaji accumulated assets illegally during the period from 2011 to 2020.

A Vigilance special unit probe was conducted against Shaji on a complaint filed by Adv MR Hareesh. The probe report was submitted in court the other day.

Discrepancies were found in the expense Shaji declared in the election nomination paper and the amount he spent during the past 9 years. In the affidavit, Shaji stated that he spent around Rs 88.5 lakh. But the Vigilance probe found that he had spent over Rs 2 crore for house construction and travel. Around 166 percent increase in his income was found by the Vigilance.

Meanwhile, no case was registered against Shaji yet. At the same time, Hareesh has submitted another petition in the court seeking registration of case against Shaji.

The issue is expected to create headache for Shaji as he is entering the electoral fray as Muslim League candidate from Azhikode constituency.
