Saritha dismissed Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s claim that he has no connection with her and the scam.

“The evidence I produced before the Commission will prove the role of some top politicians, including the Chief Minister, in the scam,” she said.

Saritha claimed the digital documents contained evidence of what she had written in a letter while in police custody.

She had in the letter, which was recently aired by two news channels, alleged that the Chief Minister and a host of other leaders had sexually abused her.

Dismissing the charges, Chandy has filed a criminal defamation case against Saritha and four journalists of two news channels, complaining that they hatched a conspiracy to defame him by airing the news item on April 3 and 4, to the effect that he raped her.

The complaint filed before Chief Judicial Magistrate Court, Ernakulam, said they released a “truncated letter (allegedly written by her while she was in judicial incarceration) wherein it is stated that she was raped by the complainant in his official residence–Cliff House, Thiruvananthapuram.

“Common sense fails to comprehend as to how such an incident can occur in the Cliff House, where the complainant is residing with his family, and several security guards,” the complaint had said.

    She is an expert on taking the Media for a ride and the Media also behaves as of she found "part" of the long lost lollipop which the kid (Media) had lost. Shame on the media irrespective of any element of truth in what she says.

    Mudslinging is not right. But if it is mutually agreed then she should not complain. If it is for some benefit and she did not get the benefit as agreed then she has a right to complain but not claim it as rape. If it is a rape he should have complained then and there at that time.
