Kummanam Rajasekharan named as accused in financial fraud worth Rs 28.75 lakh
Thiruvananthapuram: BJP leader Kummanam Rajasekharan has been named as an accused in a financial fraud case. The case pertains to his PA allegedly scamming Rs 28.75 lakh from an Aranmula native.
Aranmula police registered the FIR with Kummanam Rajasekharan as the fifth accused in the complaint regarding a financial transaction carried out by Praveen Kumar, who was his PA during his tenure as the Mizoram Governor.
Kollamkodu native Vijayan and Praveen had collected Rs 35 lakh from Aranmula native Harikrishnan for establishing Bharat Bio Polymer Factory in Palakkad. However, the factory was not set up and the money was not returned to Harikrishnan. Following this, Harikrishnan contacted the party leadership and Rs 6.25 lakh was returned to him following the intervention of BJP NRI cell convenor Harikumar.
Harikrishnan complained to the police as he did not receive the remaining amount even after 2 years. Harikrishnan, in his complaint, stated that Kummanam tried to make him believe that it was a good investment.
9 persons have been named accused in the case. Kummanam Rajasekharan’s former PA Praveen is the first accused. His partner Vijayan, his family members, manager and BJP NRI cell convenor Harikumar are also named as accused.
