Coimbatore | Prime accused in the solar scam in Kerala Saritha Nair today appeared before a court here in connection with a cheating case filed against her by a city-based industrialist.

As one of the co-accused in the case did not appear, the 6th Judicial Magistrate Court adjourned the hearing to March 16.

Saritha is facing two cheating cases here and 27 in Kerala related to the solar scam in which scores of people were allegedly duped of crores of rupees after being promised solar panel solutions.

Later talking to reporters here, she said she was contemplating to move the Kerala High Court seeking a speedy inquiry by the Justice Sivarajan commission looking into the scam.

Saritha claimed that she had more evidence in support of her allegations that bribe was paid to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Power Minister Aryadan Mohammed, a charge already denied by them.

Deposing before the Justice Sivarajan Commission in Kochi in January, Saritha had alleged that Rs 1.90 crore had been given to a key aide of Chandy and Rs 40 lakh to the PA of Mohammed for setting up mega solar projects in the state.
