Kerala Police headquarters has no list of cops with criminal antecedents
Mr. S. Sreejith, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Training), had filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking to know whether a list of officers with criminal background was being maintained by the Kerala police headquarters and whether his name appeared in such a list as reported by media.
In its reply, the State Police Headquarters (PHQ) has stated that no such list was being prepared or maintained at the PHQ. In another reply to his application, the Chief Secretary has said that his name was not in a list of officers with criminal background but was included in a list of officers against whom vigilance cases had been registered.
The vigilance case was registered against the applicant before the Court of Enquiry Commissioner and Special Judge, Thrissur after a complaint was filed by an individual against him.
