Will do what needs to be done as per the law: CM on Senkumar verdicttext_fields
Thiruvananthapuram: Reacting to the Supreme Court direction to reinstate T.P. Senkumar as the police chief, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said he accepted the verdict as Supreme Court is ‘Supreme Court’.
Vijayan told reporters that now that the apex court had given its ruling, "we are waiting for the entire verdict".
"Once that comes, we will do what needs to be done as per the law."
In the assembly, Vijayan had come down heavily on Senkumar, saying he was not fit to head the state police force.
Former Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said the state government should abide by the ruling.
Former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, under whom Senkumar served, called it a huge morale booster for the officer and the verdict proved that the cases he probed were investigated in the best possible manner.
Loknath Behra, the current police chief who replaced Senkumar, said he had nothing to say on the verdict. "We are all government servants."
