Truth can't be hidden for a long time, says Oommen Chandy on solar case
Thiruvananthapuram: Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy affirmed that the solar rape case was registered without any evidence as part of a political conspiracy. He said that the case was fabricated to attack the political enemies of some people.
“The government also knows the hidden motives behind the case. But they tried to use it politically,” said Oommen Chandy while responding to the media after the Crime Branch gave a clean chit to him in the solar rape case.
“The Supreme Court also ordered that the complainant woman's letter should not be added to the report of the commission and no action should be taken over it. The case was expected to close with this order. Everyone knows there is no evidence in the case. Because of this, I didn’ t try to obtain anticipatory bail or seek cancellation of the FIR even after non-bailable offences were charged against me," said Oommen Chandy.
“This case exists against me for the last 2 years. The probe official was free to arrest me at any time. I planned to take legal action after the arrest. Because I decided that I won’t let the government argue that further action in the case was delayed due to legal action taken by me,” he added.
He pointed out that the case was handed over to CBI after 5 years. He also questioned the Kerala police over delaying action in the case.
“Truth cannot be hidden for a long time,” added the Congress leader.
