TP Senkumar, who recently lost his job as Kerala’s police chief, took to Facebook to declare that he was not spineless.
He was removed as the Director General of Police after the Left Front government took office replacing the Congress-led UDF.
Senkumar’s last Facebook post as the state’s police chief read, “To all my readers. This may be my last facebook post as SPC of Kerala. This facebook page was created with an intention to have continuous and mutual beneficial interaction. Due to some of the exigencies, this may not have been fully possible. However, I have to thank you for all the suggestions and reactions. I have joined as an IES officer in the Government of India in 1981, before joining IPS. During the last 35 years I have always kept honesty, integrity and justice and a special care for the downtrodden. I still have all my vertebras intact. I have never appeased anybody for any posting. I have always tried to be impartial and fair.
“I can leave this place with full satisfaction that in my entire service career I have never asked any subordinate officer to do anything illegal. I have never allowed in my knowledge to arrest an innocent and pad up evidences. I hope this is the greatest satisfaction that a police officer can get. I have always resisted illegitimate interferences.
So Thank you all !”
Even though the Supreme Court order bars any state government from truncating the tenure of the state’s police chief, the new Kerala government has removed Senkumar barely after one year in offic e.
The remorseless state government said that it had no regrets in removing Senkumar.
“There is nothing wrong in it. Only the right decisions have been taken,” EP Jayarajan, Industries Minister was quoted as saying.
