Oommen Chandy - VS Achuthanandan
Thiruvananthapuram: The district court here on Monday stayed the verdict of the trial court that ordered former chief minister VS Achuthanandan to pay Congress veteran Oommen Chandy Rs 10 lakh in a defamation case. The arguments of the both parties will be heard on February 22.
The Thiruvananthapuram sub court had ordered VS to pay Rs 10,10000 to Chandy. The district court stayed this conditionally.
VS, in August 2013, had accused the then chief minister Chandy of forging a company and looting the exchequer in relation to the infamous solar scam. Chandy approached the court against the statement of VS.
