Kannur Range IG Kumar Upadhyay has been asked to look into the allegations of bribery against Kozhikode MP and UDF candidate M K Raghavan, said DGP Loknath Behra on Friday.
A private news channel on Wednesday released a sting operation video of Kozhikode MP and UDF candidate M K Raghavan who allegedly sought bribe of Rs 5 cr from a group approached him.
Raghavan on Thursday in a press conference denied the allegations and said that he suspects the involvement of rival CPIM’s ‘conspiracy’.
District Collector Sambasiva Rao, in response to the Chief Election Commissioner’s direction, said that the available information is insufficient to take any decision on the tape. Reports suggest that he demanded a forensic test of the footages.
