Respond on contempt notice: Supreme Court to Karnan

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today gave the orders to Kerala to restore T.P. Senkumar as the Director General of Police after noting that his removal was arbitrary.

The apex court set aside the Pinarayi Vijayan government’s decision to remove Senkumar following a public outcry over the allegations of mishandling of the Kollan temple fire tragedy and the Jisha murder case.
