Posted on: 12 Aug 2013
Kochi: The govt informed the High Court that Tenny Joppan, the former PA of Oommen Chandy who was arrested in the solar scam, may be granted conditional bail. The AG informed this to the court. His bail plea will be taken up on August 16.
The HC also flayed the Pathanamthitta Magistrate Court verdict to remand Joppan for 30 days. Earlier, the HC also wanted the developments of the case to be intimated to them regularly. It was after this, the AG gave its explanation to the HC.
Police arrested Joppan based on a complaint filed by Konni native Sreedharan Nair. Though Joppan was booked as an accused in a cheating case of Rs 40 lakh filed by Sreedharan Nair, his involvement in other cases is also being probed.
