Thiruvananthapuram: In an apparent tit-for-tat move, Kerala Police have asked KSEB to settle Rs 130 crore pending against the protection given to the latter’s vital installations. The move comes after KSEB issued a slew of revenue-recovery notices over power bill dues of various police units.

ADGP K Padmakumar, IPS, forwarded a letter to KSEB chairman Dr Rajan N Khobragade, IAS demanding the payment.

It may be noted that the disputes over money owed by both entities to each other have been in the limelight for two years. Audit-related documents too have been flagged multiple times.

The row once again heated up as KSEB sought Kerala Police Battalion III to settle dues from 2004 to 2009 and a fine. In response, Kerala Police demanded KSEB to settle the money owed from the year 2013, for giving protection to vital installations at various institutions. There needs to be clarity on owed money and money to be paid over revenue-recovery notices, police noted in its letter.
