CBI on Thursday opposed in the Kerala High Court the plea of the CPI(M) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan to split the trial of the case relating to alleged irregularities in the award of a contract to a Canadian company for renovation of hydel projects in 1996.

Canadian firm SNC Lavalin is the sixth accused and its former Vice-President Claus Trendl the ninth accused in the case relating to alleged irregularities in the award of contracts by KSEB to SNC Lavalin company for the renovation of three hydel projects in the state in 1996, causing a loss of over Rs 375 crore to the state exchequer.

Vijayan, a former power minister, contended that the case was hanging like a ‘Damocles sword’ over his head. Delay in the trial was causing serious hardships to him.
