THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The CBI interviewed Pheney Balakrishnan, the victim’s attorney in the solar scam case. The interrogation was conducted at the CBI office in the capital four days ago. He was also told to be present for questioning on Wednesday.

CBI has also notified C Manoj Kumar alias Saranya Manoj, a former Congress leader from Kerala to appear before the investigative team for questioning at his office in Thiruvananthapuram this week. Manoj had previously come forward alleging Ganesh was behind the plot to appoint UDF leaders in the scam.

Pheney told TNIE that his statements about the alleged involvement of senior Congress leader KC Venugopal and BJP leader AP Abdullakutty were taped. “The detectives asked me about Venugopal and Abdullakutty. I gave all the details based on the victim impact statements. I was ordered to appear again for questioning on Wednesday,” he said.

On May 14, CBI officials interviewed Kerala (B) Congress Leader KB Ganesh Kumar, MLA in connection with the case. The questioning was based on statements made by the leaders, including former chief minister Oommen Chandy, who is a defendant in the case.
