Kozhikode: Kerala police on Monday registered a case against MK Raghavan, Congress leader and UDF candidate from Kozhikode just a day before the election after a sting operation video surfaced. The video allegedly shows Raghavan negotiating a bribe. In the viral video telecast by a news channel, two people are seen promising to donate Rs 5 crore to the election fund if land deals were completed smoothly for them.
Raghavan also revealed that around Rs 20 crore is required for the election campaign and that his party could provide Rs 2 crore. Raghavan even asks the others in the video to hand over the money at a party office in New Delhi and that the deal would be in cash only.
