CM Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday hinted at former PWD minister VK Ebrahimkunju’s arrest regarding the Palarivattom flyover scam.
“I heard a story about someone today. He will have to suffer. If reports are against him, he will have to spend time eating jail food,” the CM said. Meanwhile, latest reports suggest that Ebrahimkunju will be arrested soon in relation to the scam.
Earlier, former PWD Principal Secretary TO Sooraj had informed the High court that it was Ebrahimkunju who ordered him to hand over Rs 8.25 crores to the private company without any interest. Vigilance officials have apparently collected evidence which proves Sooraj’s claim. According to sources, a decision regarding the former minister’s arrest will be made within two days.
