Rash Lal, son of former Kollam district committee member D. Radhakrishnan, is the prime accused in the scam, according to Kavitha’s statement.
Police said Rash Lal had taken money from 60 persons promising seats. A look-out notice has been issued for him.
Radhakrishnan, according to sources, is a supporter of the Pinarayi Vijayan faction in the party, though he was earlier with the VS faction. In 2005, when he was a district committee member, his son got involved in a spirit case, leading to his losing his membership in the district committee.
The Kollam DCC has used this opportunity to attack the LDF. “Why is the LDF not responding to this scam after creating an uproar over the Saritha issue? It should come up with its response at the earliest,” said Prathapavarma Thampan, Kollam DCC president. Kavitha Pillai is likely to be produced in a Kollam court on Friday.
