karuvannur-

THRISSUR: The ED will again demand the cusotdy of Vadakanchery municipal councilor and CPM leader PR Aravindakshan, who was arrested in the Karuvannur Cooperative Bank fraud case. The ED remand report says that the high level connection in the case is clear. The court remanded Arvindakshan and former bank accountant Jills to Ernakulam sub-jail, who were arrested in the case.

ED claims that besides Aravindakshan, more people are involved in the scam. The ED remand report termed loan fraud as an organized crime. The central agency is probing other bank accounts and financial transactions related to Aravindakshan.

ED had earlier informed the court that Aravindakshan has a fixed deposit of 50 lakhs in Karuvannur Bank. Apart from this, Aravindakshan's 90-year-old mother has a fixed deposit of Rs 63 lakh in Peringandur Bank. But mother's income is an agricultural pension of Rs.1600 only. ED also stated that the nominee of this account is Sathees Kumar's brother.

ED also says that Satheesh Kumar and Aravindakshan traveled abroad together. Aravindakshan has also traveled abroad with a person named Chacko. The ED is also probing the sale of property in the name of Aravindakshan's wife for Rs 85 lakh.

The ED's remand report says that Aravindakshan is not responding to questions about many of the above matters.
