chief-minister

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Rejecting the allegations of the enforcement directorate, the state government has filed an affidavit before the high court. The state government in its affidavit has said that Swapna has earlier been compelled to testify against the CM. It further adds that the agency has a secret agenda and her pre-recorded audio clip came out when she was in ED custody. The state government’s reply affidavit comes on the plea submitted by ED before HC demanding cancellation of the crime branch case against them.

“The case was taken against ED after completing the preliminary investigation. Swapna has already confessed about the audio clip, in which she was forced to testify against the chief minister. Swapna has also made it clear in her handwritten letter. The allegations being raised in ED’s plea are baseless. The agency has a secret agenda,” The government said in the affidavit.

The government also alleged that P Radhakrishnan, additional deputy director, ED has misused the testimonies of the accused and he had submitted other documents along with the plea to publicise rumours against high profile individuals involved in the case.

The court will re-consider ED’s plea seeking to cancel the crime branch’s case on Tuesday. Senior advocate in Supreme Court, Harin P Lavel will appear in the high court for the state government on Tuesday.
