KOCHI: Though the inquiry into the Mishel case has been transferred to the Crime Branch, allegations of lapses on the part of the police in initiating immediate action are mounting. 


Coming out heavily against the police apathy, the State Police Complaints Authority (SPCA) Chairman K Narayana Kurup has said the police officers had made serious mistakes.


“The police took a ‘bell and the bill’ approach. When the parents came to Ernakulam Central police station to lodge a complaint, the officer on duty sent them back saying the SI was not there. This kind of approach cannot  be tolerated,’’ he said.  


The City Police Commissioner has suspended senior civil police officer Abdul Jaleel, who was on GD duty on March 5 night at Central Police Station for the delay in taking action as per the complaint lodged by Mishel’s parents. 


Meanwhile, the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court, Maradu on Wednesday dismissed the bail plea of Cronin Alexander Baby, 26, accused of abetting the suicide of the 18-year-old CA student Mishel Shaji Varghese.
