THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The State Government on Friday decided to transfer the two police officers who fought at the police headquarters here last week.
Assistant Inspector General (AIG-2) V Gopalakrishnan and DySP (NRI cell) N A Rasheed are the officers being shifted. Sources said that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had also sought a detailed report on the incident from DGP Jacob Punnoose.
Gopalakrishnan and Rasheed - who is state president of the Police Service Officers’ Association - had engaged in a verbal duel over a leave application last week which, reportedly, soon deteriorated into a scuffle. The Home Department had promptly appointed ADGP Mahesh Kumar Singla to investigate the matter
