THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) N Shankar Reddy in his report has said that there is no conclusive evidence to prove that T J Jose, IGP, Thrissur range had resorted to cheating.
The ADGP, who led the probe, also recommended a Crime Branch inquiry into the incident.
The invigilator had reported that they could not seize the material allegedly used by T J Jose for cheating while appearing for the exam as he had ran out of the hall with the hall ticket and the notes used for cheating. But the officials in charge of monitoring the exam are firm on the stance that Jose had resorted to malpractice and was caught red-handed. The ADGP was directed by state police chief K S Balasubramanian to submit a report on the copying incident.
According to sources further action against Jose would be taken on the basis of reports submitted by the Crime Branch and MG University. The University sub-committee will record statement of Jose on May 25.
Sources said that Jose would not be given any position till his name is cleared. The Department of Home has asked the tainted official to extend his leave till further notice.
Police Academy Director Suresh Rajpurohit IPS has been asked to takeover as Thrissur range IG.
The incident was reported on May 4 at St Paul’s college, Kalamassery.
