The Cyber police have booked a case against former Kerala Police chief T P Senkumar for his controversial remarks. The case has been booked under Section 153A of the IPC, which is non-bailable.
Director General of Prosecutions Manjeri Sreedharan Nair had given the legal advice to the government to book Senkumar.
The legal advice pointed out that Senkumar had issued a statement, which could instigate communal hatred and added that cases could be booked against him.
The report said a case can be registered against Senkumar and the publisher of the weekly.
Youth League state secretary Adv. P K Firos, among others, had filed a complaint to the government and the DGP alleging that he made controversial remarks in an interview to a leading magazine. Senkumar’s comment had triggered widespread protests.
