Shalu Menon denied bail

Kochi, Jul 29, 2013: The Kerala High Court on Monday rejected the bail plea of Shalu Menon, the second accused in a case related to the solar panel scam.

Shalu was arrested from her Changanessery residence on July 6. She moved the High Court after the Thiruvananthapuram judicial first class magistrate court dismissed her bail plea.

The court denied bail to Shalu in the case related to defrauding Rasiq Ali along with Biju Radhakrishnan for an amount of Rs 40 lakhs.

Meantime, the court granted bail to Shalu in the case for helping Biju to escape. Even though bail was granted in this case, she will not be released from jail as bail has been denied in the other case.
