An intelligence report was faxed to the Chief Minister A. K. Antony’s office in 2002 allegedly linking the Tourism and Fisheries Minister K. V. Thomas to Rs 330 crore hawala scam. The news made headline when a reporter of Surya TV named Anil Nambiar beemed the letter on his channel accusing Thomas of participating in the scam. However, A. K. Antony later declared that it was a forged document. After a month, Anil Nambiar confessed that it was Congress MLA Sobhana George who had lent him the fraudulent document. Soon after, a non-bailable arrest warrant was issued for the arrest of Sobhana George. The court held that Sobhana was a victim of groupism among the Congress Party and ruled out the case against her. 

Corruption Charges
A PIL was filed against K. V. Thomas in the High Court of Kerala in 2003 by a member of the rival faction alleging that Thomas had undervalued his property at Kallancherry in nearby Kumbalangi island. Additionally, the PIL alleged that the toll at the bridge in Thoppumpady in Kochi was being collected by an unnamed company of Thomas. Another accusation listed in the PIL read that he had bought three sophisticated fishing boats in the name of his wife. Consequently, Thomas submitted a counter-affidavit in the court claiming that charges levelled against him were fictitious and imaginary and were surfaced to achieve political gains. 

Disciplinary Action by Congress
In April 2022, AICC decided to take disciplinary action against K V Thomas, who, despite being barred by INC, attended a seminar organised by CPM Party in Kannur. Thomas argued that the matter of centre-state relations (the topic of the seminar he attended) was a national issue; therefore, he felt the urge to attend it. Thereafter, the speculations about KV Thomas losing his official posts surfaced in the media.
