Cong MP booked for making bribery remark against SC judge

Congress Member of Parliament K Sudhakaran was today charged by the Kerala police for “concealing design to commit crime” in connection with his startling claim that he was witness to a Supreme Court judge allegedly being bribed 15 years ago.
The Museum police registered the case against Sudhakaran under sections 120 and 200 of IPC – concealing design to commit offences and using false declaration as true respectively -- on a complaint by a lawyers' forum in Thiruvananthapuram which alleged his speech at a public meeting few days back amounted to insulting the judiciary.

Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily disapproved of Sudhakaran's remarks saying such allegations could make people lose confidence in the judiciary.

Sudhakaran's sensational speech at Kottarakkara in Kollam district last Saturday has sparked a huge controversy in political and legal circles.
