THIRUVANANANTHAPURAM: It is the victory of his credibility rather than regaining the state police chief post that is crucial for Mr T.P. Senkumar, as the Supreme Court scrapped the Pinarayi Vijayan government's decision to sack him from the state police chief post citing inefficiency. Mr. Senkumar, the seniormost serving IPS officer in the state, has dedicated  the historic judgment  to his young colleagues. "This should be a message and inspiration for all officers across the country to discharge their duties without fear of succumbing to pressure as they would get justice. There are provisions in law to protect those who discharge their duties fairly. But none are exercising these options," said Mr. Senkumar.

While there were speculations that Mr. Senkumar, who is due to retire  on June 30, may not hold the state police chief till that time, Mr. Senkumar reserved his comments."Let the government decision come," he said. Mr Senkumar was at his house near PTP Nagar when the SC verdict came. He  held Sri M's latest book, 'The Journey Continues,'  while talking to the media that made a beeline to his house following the  verdict. Thanking his lawyers  Dushyant Dave, Haris Beeran and Prashant Bhushan for fighting the case to get justice for him, Mr. Senkumar said he could fight the case up to the SC  as the lawyers did not take any fee. "Advocates Dave and Beeran had put in a lot of efforts and even did not take any fee. Otherwise, an ordinary officer like me could not take the case to its logical conclusion," he said.
