DGP T P Senkumar meets Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan

Kerala's Left Democratic Front (LDF) government that came to power in May 2016 transferred T.P. Senkumar, the state's director general of police (law & order).

Kerala state's counsel had told the court that the process to reinstate has been started and that the state government has also filed a review petition regarding the case in the SC.

In a contempt petition filed by Senkumar that the Chief Secretary Nalini Netto was delaying his posting, the division bench on Friday asked for notice to be served on the state government.

Newsletter has been successfully subscribed. However, Justice Madan B Lokur overruled his objection saying: "We can impose cost even if you are withdrawing the petition".

Congress legislator K Muraleedharan, seeking leave for an adjournment motion in the Assembly on Monday, pointed out that due to the attitude of Pinarayi, the government had to tender an apology and pay a fine of Rs 25,000, which has caused embarrassment to the state. "It's only the state government which has not understood the apex court's orders asking for the reinstatment", Chennithala said. The contempt plea, filed against the Chief Secretary, alleged there was a "sinister intention" behind her "resolute refusal" to implement the court's direction and sought strict punishment against her.

Speaking on the appointment of former DGP Raman Srivastava as police advisor to the Chief Minister, the DGP said that he believes that the former DGP would not interfere in police matters.

The legislature presented the request of last Wednesday looking for illumination in the arrangements of Loknath Behera, Jacob Thomas and N Shanker Reddy as these three officers were posted through a similar request that expelled Senkumar from the post of state police boss on June 1, 2016. But Achuthanandan's salary was finalized only this week, nine months after he was appointed to the post.

According to CM Vijayan, the apex court had only directed the government to deposit Rs 25,000 to the legal service authority.

On April 10 a year ago, when Senkumar was Kerala's DGP, there was an explosion leading to a blaze after a fireworks display went awry at Puttingal Temple in Kollam district.

He said he had spoken to the chief minister before taking charge and would be meeting him as early as possible after seeking his convenience.

Senkumar said that, as DGP, his effort would be to do his best for the state.
