Thiruvananthapuram: Vigilance report says that the transaction at five estates of Nelliampathy were against the lease deed agreements. The report also says the transfer of property was with out government notice. The enquiry was on instruction from Vigilance Court.

And no such permit is obtained before transfer of these estates. The vigilance enquiry had found out that allegation against minister K.M Mani and Chief Whip P.C George having received bribe is not factual.
