Nair has said in his complaint that Selvaraj was in the CM’s office when he went there along with Saritha. Selvaraj told DC that he met CM Oommen Chandy to discuss the proposed Panchikadathuka- davu Bridge at Thirupuram in Neyyattinkara. “I called on CM that day around 6:30 pm – 7 pm.
There were a few people, including three women, outside his cabin. Now,I recall that one of them was Saritha, who was with Nair. As I left CM’s cabin, Nair and the women were standing outside. Nair wished me and I acknowledged him. But I don’t know what transpired after that”, said Selvaraj.
Chandy confirmed in the Assembly on Tuesday that Sreedharan Nair had come to his office to discuss quarry issues and don’t remember seeing Saritha. He also said scores of people turn up at his office everyday and so don’t recollect meeting Saritha.
