The Sub-Inspector (SI) who had accepted a complaint from Youth Congress members that Kollam MLA Mukesh is missing and given a receipt in return may soon collect a transfer order as a ‘token of appreciation’ from the side of the government. Action against Kollam West Police SI N. Gireesh has been recommended by his senior colleagues, sources told to The Kochi Post.
However, sources say the action will not be serious in nature. The SI would be transferred within the district during the shuffling of officers. Mr. Gireesh has been asked to go on compulsory leave for two weeks.
Mr. Gireesh was approached by around 25 Youth Congress members who filed a complaint that the newly elected MLA was missing from the constituency. Mr. Gireesh accepted the complaint and gave the receipt. This action from the part of SI has been frowned upon. Critics opined that SI should at least have picked up the phone and called the MLA, whereas some others say that if such complaints come before a public servant, it is his/her duty to address the issue.
