Questions over ex I-T official's appointment as Pinarayi Vijayan's secretary

Two leading activists on Saturday alleged that the appointment of R. Mohan as Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan's private secretary was a quid pro quo deal between the two. R. Mohan, a former Income Tax official, was appointed as Pinarayi Vijayan's private secretary in March when the election model code of conduct was in force.

"Mohan, as additional director (investigation) of Income Tax, in 2007 probed corruption charges against Pinarayi Vijayan on the orders of the Kerala High Court. Pinarayi Vijayan was then the CPM state Secretary and petitioner T. P. Nandkumar had sought information on sources of his income," said Neelakantan, a former leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Kerala.

"In 2007, Mohan submitted a report in the High Court giving Pinarayi Vijayan a clean chit. The clean chit was based on an affidavit submitted by Pinarayi Vijayan himself. But in 2008, in a letter to the Additional Solicitor General, he said that the Central Board of Direct Taxes was still looking into the charges," said Neelakantan.
