TSS chief seeks anticipatory bail

Express News Service

T’PURAM: Shyam Subramanyam, CEO of the controversial company at Technopark, Travancore Software Solutions, has approached the District Sessions Court for anticipatory bail. Shyam is an accused in a cheating case filed by the employees of the company.

The court has asked the Kazhakoottom police, which has registered the case following complaints submitted by two engineers, to file a report on the bail petition. It is learnt that the police will submit the report on Wednesday.

Shyam has been accused of accepting sums ranging from Rs 1 lakh - 1.5 lakh from candidates, promising them employment and on-the-job training for IBM mainframe course in the Technopark-based company.

The complainants alleged that they were not given proper training and had been forced to work at the company for a pittance. Many who completed the one-year-bond period were denied the bond money, though the company had promised earlier to return the money after the completion of the bond period.

Meanwhile, mediation talks initiated by Thiruvananthapuram Rural SP Sugathan on Tuesday between the company and the complainants failed midway. The company offered to allow the complainants to continue working there till the end of the bond period for Rs 1,200 a month.

But the complainants weren’t ready to accept the offer. The company refused to pay the security amount to them. ‘‘We were disappointed over the treatment meted out to us at the SP office.

The SP advised us to withdraw from the case, as it’s better for our bright future. He also asked us why only a couple of engineers raise complaints while all others work happily there,’’ a complainant told this website’s newspaper.
