Police clean-up: six cops to be sacked for misbehaving

Thiruvananthapuram: The State government has started a clean-up process in the police department with a panel of ADGP (Additional Director General of Police) which was constituted to look into charges of misconduct by the men in uniform, recommending sacking of six policemen including two circle inspectors.

The panel headed by T P Sen Kumar recommended that the service of six policemen facing grave charges should be terminated under the Section 86 of Kerala Police Act. Decision on 30 others now under suspension for various offences will be taken after the completion of departmental inquiri s being held against them.

The panel recommends that over 40 alcoholic police officials of various ranks be sent for counselling and treated at reputed de-addiction centres. They should be reinstated only if competent medical practitioners certify that they are free from addiction, it added.

The recommendations handed over to Director General of Police will be submitted to Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan next week, a panel member said.

Among the two Circle Inspectors who are likely to be sacked, T V Subramanian, 38, had allegedly molested a 45- year-old woman in a moving crowed bus near Thrissur six months earlier.

Based on the complaint of the woman, a case was registered against the Circle Inspector attached to Rapid Action Force of the state police. Consequently, he has been suspended from the service.

The other, Inspector K M Prasad, 40, had allegedly sought sexual favours from a young woman for the proper inquiry on the petition she had filed at the commission against her husband. The woman complained that the officer had been intimidating her to yield him. Police have registered a case against him under various sections of IPC for harassing women.
