Mumbai: An audio clip, allegedly involving Kerala CPM secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan’s son Binoy Vinodini Balakrishnan making an attempt to settle the rape case against him has been leaked. The leaked audio clip was recorded on January 10. This incident reportedly happened after a legal notice was sent to Binoy by the rape accused.

Binoy is reportedly heard telling the woman that he can't provide the demanded Rs 5 crore to the woman, who then demanded that he provide what he can afford for his son. Replying to this, he said that he is ready to give her the money, on the condition that she changes her name in the documents and ends her relationship with him.
