The central bureau of investigation (CBI) gave clean chit to the state opposition leader V.S. Achuthanandan in the controversial data center case. Its report yet to be out officially, also refused to indict of charges against the alleged middleman T.G. Nandakumar who was said to be in close relationship with Mr VS while he was the chief minister of Kerala.
The case relates to a decision taken by the state cabinet to handover the maintenance of state data center from CDAC-TCS combine to Reliance Communications. Then opposition United democratic front alleged irregularities and curruption in the deal and sought a thorough inquiry and subsequently the CBI took over the case.
CBI in its fresh report says that the then CM or no other person benefited financially from the deal. The huge amount of money received by Nandakumar from some sources had no relationship with the deal in question. The report further stated that there was no loss to the exchequer.
