Aravindakshan had lodged a complaint alleging that the ED officers tortured him to give a false statement against EP Jayarajan, AC Moideen, and K Radhakrishnan. He also alleged that the ED officers manhandled him during questioning on September 12.

Aravindakshan has a close connection with Satheesh Kumar, the first accused in the case. Aravindakshan was a middleman in the money transactions. He is a local committee member of the CPM in Athani. It is indicated that the probe in the case will be expanded to top leaders of the CPM.
