Kozhikode: DGP Lokanath Behera said that he was not aware of the FIR filed against journalists in connection with complaint filed by former DGP TP Senkumar against journalists.
When asked, he said that he would look into the matter and would intervene if needed.
Filing an FIR doesn’t mean taking the case to the court, he said. FIR would be registered before the probing started in a case, and even FIR itself would be rejected following the probe
