The Crime Branch and the Vigilance, conduct separate inquiries. The Corporation Letter controversy has failed to dig out much evidence. Including the source of the letter allegedly seeking backdoor appointments.
The source said that the Crime Branch is set to hand over a preliminary investigation. The report later today has no answer to questions. Like the letter source and the persons behind its preparation and circulation. The Vigilance too couldn’t make much headway. On whether there was any financial irregularity behind the alleged move. To fill up temporary posts based on a party list.
A letter written by Mayor Arya Rajendran addressing CPM district secretary Anavoor Nagappan. Seeking a list of candidates for the 295 temporary vacancies. In the Thiruvananthapuram, Corporation has resulted in a political storm.
Another letter by Municipal Corporation parliamentary party secretary D R Anil. To the party district secretary about temporary postings. The SAT hospital too added fuel to the controversy.
The Crime Branch probe got constricted to recording the statements following a direction. That they required only to hold a primary probe and submit a report.
The Crime Branch team didn’t follow the following inquiry procedures in such matters.
Since the Mayor claimed the letter was fake. The sleuths could have seized the mobile phones of the suspects. And the hard discs in the Corporation office and handed them over to Cyber Dome. Or Forensic Science Laboratory for scientific examinations. This could have shed light on the letter source within 24 hours.
The employees gave a statement that anyone could access the letter pad of the Mayor. Arya Rajendran herself told the cops. That her used letter pads were there in many sections of the Corporation.
