Cops probing Pollachi case transferred


The Police  Officers who had botched up the Pollachi sexual abuse case have been transferred. Superintendent of Police R.Pandiarajan  has been transferred and Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Sujit Kumar has been appointed as SP in his place. Pandiarajan has been kept in vacancy reserve. He had not only revealed the Identity of the complainant but also failed to take the accused into custody and interrogate them within 15 days of their arrest.

The Pollachi DSP R. Jayaram and Inspector Natesan who were involved in the probe have also been transferred. They will be allotted postings at a later date. Political parties have claimed that AIADMK functionaries had links with the gang members. However SP Pandiarajan said that there was no such link but disclosed the name of the victim at a press meet. Following this, the Madurai bench of Madras High Court recommended that the State Government takes disciplinary action against the concerned officers.
