Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan has faced wide criticism for acting against a police officer who was doing her duty.

Days after Chaitra Teresa John, the DCP, Law and Order in Kerala police was hounded by the states CPIM government for raiding a party office in Thiruvananthapuram, she has been given a clean chit in the report filed by ADGP Manoj Abraham.

According to reports, the inquiry report filed by ADGP Abraham states that Chaitra’s actions were not illegal.

The inquiry report filed by ADGP Abraham to DGP Loknath Behera reportedly states that no action is needed against the woman officer. The inquiry report mentions that DCP Chaitra had followed all required protocols before conducting the operation.

Chaitra Teresa John had a temporary charge as DCP, Law and Order when she had raided the CPIM district committee office to arrest the DYFI workers who had pelted stones at the Medical College police station the previous night.

DCP Chaitra John in her search report submitted to the magistrate has stated that she had credible information, including evidence from a culprit’s phone conversation that the DYFI workers were inside the district committee office.

Chaitra had raided the CPIM district committee office on the night of 24 January to arrest the accused DYFI workers. The nine workers had attacked and pelted stones at the Medical College police station after they were not allowed to meet to other DYFI workers who were booked under the POCSO Act.

Chaitra’s action had invited the wrath of the Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan himself. Vijayan’s office had ordered the immediate removal of Chaitra from her post and she was sent back to her original post at the women’s cell.

Anavoor Ngappan, the district secretary of the CPIM had gone ahead to state that the raid was a conspiracy to defame the government during the assembly session and Chaitra had done it to get media attention.

The government’s seemingly vindictive action on a police officer had attracted much criticism from the political opposition as well as media and the public. Replying to the questions by the opposition leaders in the assembly, CM Vijayan had stated that his government would not approve of any action intended to undermine the independent functioning of the political parties.

As per a report, Chaitra has been in the government’s crosshairs after she took a strong stand against eight state government employees belonging to a left union who had vandalised an SBI branch during the strikes on January 9th.
