Solar scam: Arrest warrant issued against Saritha

The Solar Commission on Thursday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Saritha Nair, the prime accused in the scam, for not attending the trial despite repeated warnings.

The commission has directed her to appear before the commission by June 27 or else she would face arrest.

Saritha, who has been giving unknown reasons for her non-appearance, had earlier failed to appear before the commission four times.

The solar scam surfaced when Saritha Nair and her business partner Biju Radhakrishnan were arrested in 2013 on charges of cheating numerous investors, who paid money for solar panels.
