18 days after NRI businessman's suicide, his venture gets cleared

Thiruvananthapuram, July 7 (UITV/IANS)- Eighteen days after a Nigeria-based NRI businessman committed suicide allegedly after his Rs 16 crore state-of-the-art convention centre in Kerala's Kannur was stalled by the local civic body, the project has got official clearance, it was announced Saturday.

Sajan Parayil, 49, hanged himself in his house on June 18, allegedly fed up with the way he was treated by the Anthoor Municipality Chairperson P.K. Shymala, who, at one point, according to Sajan's wife Beena, said that he will not get the clearance as long as she held the post.

Things, however, changed after Sajan's suicide as the Congress-led opposition took up the issue in a big way and the Kerala High Court took cognisance of the incident, seeking all the relevant files been submitted to it by July 5.

The Kerala government had subsequently suspended four employees of the municipality and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan assured the Assembly that things will be sorted out soon.
