THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A forensic test on an audio file claimed to be containing communally sensitive statements of former state police chief T.P. Senkumar revealed that it was tampered with. Sources said since the recording of his interview to a vernacular weekly was tampered with, there was no scope for charging Mr Senkumar in a case registered in this connection.

The interview appe-ared in the magazine contained remarks about Love Jihad’s presence in the state and Muslim population explosion. Based on a couple of complaints in this regard, the police registered a case against him and recorded his arrest.

Meanwhile, it also came to light that AIG headquarters V. Gopalakrishnan had earlier pressurised the Museum police to register a case against Mr Senkumar based on a local CPM leader's petition that he fabricated medical records to go on leave. 

Documents accessed through the RTI provisions had revealed this.

The Vigilance special court here on Thursday rejected a plea for a vigilance probe against former state police chief T.P. Senkumar. The Inquiry Commission and Special Court (Vigilance) court admitted a report of the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau that the allegations raised in the petition were already probed  and no evidences were found. Fabrication of medical records to avail leave and irregularities in allowing loan while serving as Kerala Transport Development Finance Corporation were the allegation raised in the petition filed by a local CPM leader.
