T P Senkumar to take charge Saturday

Thiruvananthapuram: IPS officer T P Senkumar, who was reinstated by the State government as the DGP (Law and Order), is likely to assume office on Saturday.

The government had on Friday reinstated Senkumar as the state police chief after the Supreme Court dismissed its clarification petition on his appointment with costs.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan signed the necessary files regarding Senkumar's reinstatement Friday night. As per reports, the government order will be issued Saturday. Senkumar can assume office once he received the order.

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

The LDF government had removed Senkumar as the DGP two days after it came to power in May 25 last year.

The Supreme Court had earlier Friday sought the response of the Kerala Chief Secretary on a contempt plea by Senkumar, who has alleged delay in his reinstatement as state police chief despite the apex court's order.

It ordered notice to Chief Secretary Nalini Netto on the contempt plea and fixed the matter for hearing on May 9.

It also imposed a cost of Rs 25,000 on the Kerala government, which had filed a separate application seeking certain clarifications on its April 24 judgement.
