Senkumar seeks appointment as Kerala police chief, writes to chief secy


Thiruvananthapuram: Director General of Police T.P. Senkumar on Tuesday sought reinstatement(पुनर्स्थापना)  as Kerala police chief, a day after the Supreme Court ordered it. The officer
submitted a written plea to chief secretary Nalini Netto, with a copy of the court verdict downloaded from its website. The government has not yet taken a decision on implementing (क्रियान्वयन) the order. Senkumar's one-sentence letter, submitted on Tuesday afternoon, demanded that he be appointed police chief as early as possible. The government has not responded.

The chief minister's private secretary, M.V. Jayarajan, said government lawyers in Delhi have been asked to examine what legal actions can be taken on the basis of the Supreme Court verdict. However, he was evasive when asked whether the order would be complied with or whether a revision petition would be filed. He just repeated that the lawyers will take suitable action after studying the verdict.

CPM sources indicated that the court order will be implemented. After all, Senkumar is due to retire on June 30. The government is free to choose anyone for the job after that. Government has been advised against a revision petition, because if that too is rejected, it would add to the government's disrepute. It is understood that Ramon Srivastava, police adviser to the chief minister, has also advised the government to implement the order.

Meanwhile, DGP Loknath Behra rushed to Delhi on Tuesday. Although it is said that he had to attend a meeting of the Intelligence Bureau, media is abuzz with hints that he was has been trying for a deputation to the Centre.
