Thiruvananthapuram, July 7 (IANS) T.P. Senkumar, who retired as Kerala Police chief on June 30 after serving for 55 days following his reinstatement through a Supreme Court order, on Friday said his pension papers are not being processed.

Addressing reporters, Senkumar blamed a senior officer for holding up his pension papers.

“After I returned to the post, I never did any political drama. I only said what some police officials are doing,” said Senkumar.

On Thursday, Senkumar created a flutter after his interview to a vernacular magazine in which he said that there is no clear cut evidence to nail a leading Malayalam actor in the now infamous actress kidnap case.

“There is a difference between evidence and doubt and that’s what I said,” clarified Senkumar.

He also said that when he was the chief he got information that an Additional Director General of police had met up with a person who was on the police radar in the actress kidnap case.

“That has to be found out,” added Senkumar.

Senkumar and the Left government never had the best of relations. On the day Pinarayi Vijayan assumed office as Chief Minister in May last year, he decided to remove him from the post of state police chief.

But not one to lie low, after an 11-month-long legal battle, Senkumar got back his post on May 6 when the Supreme Court ruled to post him back.
