Money laundering case: Vigilance questions Ebrahim Kunju

Kochi: The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau interrogated former PWD Minister V.K Ebrahim Kunju in connection with money laundering case.

Complainant Gireesh Babu had filed a petition on May 20 stating that Ebrahim Kunju tried to pressurise him to withdraw the case.

He told Vigilance that Ebrahim Kunju offered him Rs 5 lakh to withdraw the complaint he had filed against the latter citing he used two bank accounts of a media organisation under his control to launder blackmoney of Rs 10 crore in 2016, reportedly just after demonetisation.

The money is allegedly related to the Palarivattom flyover construction scam. Desk: Asianet Online
