THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  Ten IPS officers and three IAS officers had attracted disciplinary action after the UDF government came to power in May 2011, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said on Monday.

The IAS officers facing the music were T O Sooraj, B Ashok and Jose Isaac, Chandy said in a written reply to the Assembly. Sooraj had been suspended pending an investigation in a case related to disproportionate income. Also, he had attracted department-level disciplinary action in the Kalamassery land deal case.

Ashok attracted action for levelling ‘’baseless allegations’’ against the former VC of Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University and for publishing an article criticising the government policies. Jose Isaac invited action for irregularities in the construction of a building for the women’s industries unit while he was serving as Wayanad district panchayat secretary.
