Chennai's Supercop Finds Himself Nowhere to go

Chennai: Tamil Nadu's former chief secretary Ram Mohan Rao may have been accommodated with a different posting barely three months after the Income Tax raid on his house, but another Tamil Nadu officer isn't having such a happy journey in the services.

IPS officer NK Senthamaraikannan, who was Inspector General (IG) of the North Zone when the state saw quite a bit of political turmoil last month, had been transferred out of his post and is currently still without a posting.

Senthamaraikannan, who was unfortunately responsible for the inquiry at the Koovathur resort where over 100 MLAs had been staying while waiting for the Governor's decision on who will become Chief Minister, today finds himself nowhere to go. He has no office. Apparently, the current dispensation found "he insulted the MLAs" because he went for an on-ground inquiry at the behest of the High Court and the Governor.

This ace police officer, incidentally, was decorated with the Chief Minister's medal for excellence in investigation just seven months ago (when J Jayalalithaa was chief minister). In fact, when he had led a police team to the resort, a video had emerged showing the MLAs getting into an argument where they hurled abuses at this officer.

Ironically, Kannan, as he is known among colleagues, is best known for having been the main strategist in the Special Task Force that caught India's most feared forest brigand, Veerappan, 10 years ago.

The man who neutralised the country's toughest bandit, now finds himself without a job, stuck as he is in a political mire. As News18 told you last month, it's the IPS that's struggling, caught between OPS and EPS.
