THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Congress MLA Mathew Kuzhalnadan said that the verdict of the Karnataka High Court in the monthly quota case tears down the arguments made by the Chief Minister and the CPM. Mathew Kuzhalnadan was responding to the media after the Karnataka High Court rejected the plea filed by Veena Vijayan's Exalogic Solutions demanding the quashing of the SFIO probe into its transactions with a private black sand company.

"The claim that no crime was sufficiently committed to warrant an SFIO inquiry was dismissed by the court. Both the Chief Minister and the CPM stated that the SFIO investigation was launched as a part of the central government's political hunt. The action from the court has torn down this argument. This is an expected verdict. We can get clarity regarding the verdict only after seeing its full copy," Mathew Kuzhalnadan said.

The plea filed by Exalogic Solutions was rejected by the bench headed by Justice Nagaprasanna. The court also said that SFIO can continue with its probe into the Exalogic-CMRL transactions. On February 12, Additional Solicitor General Kuloor Arvind Kamath, who appeared for the SFIO, had informed the court that the preliminary investigation had revealed that serious financial crimes were committed in CMRL's dealings.
