New Delhi: The Supreme Court Tuesday closed the contempt proceedings initiated against chief secretary of Kerala on a plea by senior IPS officer T P Senkumar, who had alleged delay in his reinstatement as the state police chief.

A bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta said since Senkumar has been reinstated as the Director General of Police (DGP) in pursuance to its earlier order, "nothing survives" in his contempt plea.

The apex court also accepted the "unconditional apology" tendered by Kerala's chief secretary Nalini Netto who on May 5 was directed by the bench to respond to Senkumar's plea.

Senkumar's counsel had earlier told the bench that the state government has "mocked" at the judgement passed by the apex court, which had on April 24 directed reinstatement of the senior IPS officer as the state police chief.

The counsel representing Kerala had on May 5 told the bench that the process to reinstate was going on.

The apex court had on April 24 ordered the reinstatement of Senkumar, saying he was transferred by the ruling LDF government "unfairly" and "arbitrarily".

Senkumar had on April 29 moved the apex court seeking contempt action against the chief secretary alleging "wilful, deliberate disobedience" of its order reinstating him.
