Thiruvananthapuram: State Police Chief T.P. Senkumar has cautioned ADGP Rishiraj Singh for the alleged breach of the protocol at the function attended by Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala at the Police Academy in Thrissur.
The photograph of him allegedly showing disrespect to the Home Minister has gone viral in the social media.
However, reacting to the incident involving ADGP Rishiraj Singh, Chennithala yesterday said it was for the DGP to probe if his behaviour violated protocol.
"I have no complaint against anyone in this regard," the minister told reporters.
The incident occurred Saturday when the Home Minister arrived to attend the passing out parade of women police personnel at the Police Academy in Thrissur.
As soon as it was announced in the public address system that Chennithala had reached the venue, senior police officers on the dais stood up to receive him and saluted the minister.
ADGP Rishiraj Singh, in charge of special services and traffic, who was seated on a sofa, continued to do so and did not proceed to welcome the minister or salute him. After Chennithala left the venue, the official got up and left.
