KOCHI: The government on Wednesday submitted before the Eranakulam Bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal that the preliminary inquiry revealed that former Thrissur City Police Commissioner Jacob Job had needlessly interfered in the investigation in Chandrabose murder case.  Jacob was suspended from service for holding secret parleys with controversial businessman Mohammed Nisham who is an accused in the murder case.

The state made the submission in response to a petition filed by Jacob Job challenging the suspension. Jacob Job submitted that he had only exercised the statutory function conferred on him by the provisions contained in the Code of Criminal Procedure, Kerala Police Act and the Kerala Police Manual.  The state submitted that the contention of the petitioner to reinstate him in service as Superintendent with all consequential benefits is illegal and unreasonable.

 “Reinstatement of Jacob Job in service at this point of time is not desirable since it may create unnecessary controversies as the trial of the case is going on,” the state  submitted.
