Plea for probe against Balakrishnan kin to be heard tomorrow

Plea for probe against Balakrishnan kin to be heard tomorrow

An earlier petition filed by George Vattukulam, State President of Kerala Malayala Vedi (Forum), came up before the court today which rejected it on technical grounds as there was no spare copy of the petition.

The petitioner brought it to the notice of the judge, V Jayaram, that he had submitted the spare copy with the petition and handed it over to him.

The judge then directed the petitioner to submit it to the court office and file a fresh petition in two weeks.

Vattukulam, however, submitted another fresh petition along with the spare copy today itself and the case has been posted for tomorrow.

The petitioner had alleged that Justice Balakrishnan, his brother K G Bhaskaran and son-in-law P V Sreenijan had amassed wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income.

The judge had last week observed that Balakrishnan would not come under the court's jurisdiction and directed Vattukulam to submit a fresh petition, removing his name from the list of respondents.

Facing allegations, Bhaskran had resigned as government pleader in the Kerala High Court, while Sreenijan quit the Youth Congress membership.
