₹1.3 cr compensation to former ISRO scientist in fake spy case

Dec 27, 2019 21:59 IST

The Kerala Government has decided to pay ₹1.3 crores as compensation to former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan, who was falsely implicated in a 1994 espionage case. The amount is for amicably settling the case filed by 77-year-old Naryananan against the government in a Thiruvananthapuram court. The compensation is in addition to the ₹50 lakh provided by the state government and the ₹10 lakh recommended by the National Human Rights Commission. Last year the top court had found that the scientist was "arrested unnecessarily, harassed and subjected to mental cruelty" after allegations of leak of confidential space programme documents.
