Senkumar says SC order a boost to those working with commitmenttext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: IPS officer T P Senkumar on Monday said that the Supreme Court direction to the State government to reinstate him as the police chief was a boost to those who work with commitment.
Expressing his happiness, Senkumar, presently the Director of the state-owned Institute of Management, said here that justice had prevailed in his case.
"I take this opportunity to thank my advocates, the media and all those who stood by me in the pursuit of my fight for justice."
Senkumar added: "I will wait for the government to make the next move."
Dealing a blow to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, the apex court on Monday directed the LDF government to reinstate Senkumar as the Director General of Police of the State.
Senkumar was removed as DGP on the day Vijayan assumed office on May 25, 2016. The officer is set to retire on June 30.
The government had justified Senkumar's removal saying he did not do a clean job in the Puttingal temple cracker blast and in the Jisha murder cases.
Senkumar approached the Kerala High Court but failed to get a favourable verdict. He then moved the apex court.
