The Kerala High Court today quashed a vigilance case against former minister and senior CPI(M) leader E P Jayarajan, who had resigned following allegations of nepotism in appointments when his party-led LDF was in power.

The court also quashed the case against Jayarajan’s nephew and CPI(M) central committee member P K Sreemathy’s son Sudheer Nambiar, who was the second accused in the case, and state industries secretary Paul Antony.Allowing the petition filed by Jayarajan, Justice P Ubaid criticised the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) questioning why such cases, which will not withstand judicial scrutiny, were filed.

Giving a clean chit, the VACB had earlier informed the court that offences “may not lie” against Jayarajan.
