Kerala govt rejects explanation from Jacob Thomas

The Kerala government has decided to proceed with the disciplinary action against DGP Jacob Thomas.

Thomas is under suspension for openly criticising the government for its handling of fishermen-related issues post-Cyclone ‘Ockhi’.

The government’s action was following the explanation given by Thomas.

According to sources, the explanation given by Thomas was not satisfactory and hence decided to continue with the action. Chief secretary Paul Antony submitted a report to the chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan in this regard.

Earlier, Jacob Thomas was issued a show cause notice by the government for his remarks.

Sources said the report suggested that the action by Thomas was against the service rules.
