Solar Commission Erred in Letting Biju to be Taken to Coimbatore, Says HC

Kochi: The Solar Commission, probing the solar scam that rocked Kerala, came in for sharp criticism from the Kerala High Court for not adhering to guidelines while taking accused Biju Radhakrishnan to Coimbatore.

According to a single bench comprising Justice Kemal Pasha, the Commission should have obtained prior permission of the Session Court before taking a murder accused to unearth evidence.

Criticising the Commission’s act, the High Court said that the Commission taking the a murder accused out on the quest to find evidence without permission is a lapse, and that such instances should be avoided in future.
