Vigilance probe against son-in-law of former HC judge

Vigilance probe against son-in-law of former HC judge

The probe is also on against K A Rauf, co-brother of Kunhalikutty, who had recently levelled allegations against the IUML leader and two judges -- K Narayana Kurup and K Thankappan -- the Kerala High Court was informed today.

K C Peter, former additional DGP had alleged in a sting operation by a local channel that he had given money to Sunny, son-in-law of Justice Kurup and also to Justice Thankappan to give favourable orders in the case.

Advocate General C P Sudhakara Prasad informed the Court that a vigilance enquiry has been initiated against Sunny, son-in-law of Justice Kurup and Rauf.

The AG also informed the court that if something comes out in the enquiry regarding the allegation, it would be placed before the chief justice.

The submission was made when a PIL by Ettumanoor Navothana Vedi, a social organisation, seeking Central Vigilance enquiry against the two former judges came up before a division bench comprising Chief Justice J Chelemeswar and Justice P R Ramachandra Menon.

The bench reserved judgement on the petition.
