Trivandrum: In the petition filed by Konni Sreedharan Nair against Tenny Joppan there was no mention of the chief minister’s name. But later it was found that some unknown person has added the chief minister’s name in the list of people whom Sreedharan Nair had talked to. This leads the police to suspect that somebody has hatched a conspiracy to trap the chief minister in the solar scam. Sreedharan Nair has clarified that he has never mentioned the name of the chief minister in the petition. Now the police are planning to start an enquiry into as to who has made the correction in the original petition.

Again, in a press statement, Sreedharan Nair reiterated that he has neither met nor talked to the chief minister. Now the police are trying to find out at what stage this addition to the petition took place.
