Last Updated: Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 22:33

Kochi: Kerala High Court today directed the
state vigilance to expeditiously complete the investigation
against suspended IGP Tomin J Thachankery, facing various
charges, including amassment of wealth, and submit the final
report in the court.

The direction in this regard was issued by Justice R
Basant while disposing a contempt petition by Boby Kuruvilla
of Alapuzha alleging inaction on the part of vigilance in
completing the inquiry against Thachankery, who was suspended
for undertaking a foreign trip without informing the state
government.

Earlier, on Jan 27, 2007, the government had informed the
court that the inquiry would be completed and factual report
filed within six months.

The petitioner approached the court with a contempt
petition pointing out that even after the lapse of three
years, the direction had not been complied with.

In reply, SP Vigilance, informed the court that if the
allegation of amassment of wealth was found to be true and
departmental action will also be taken.
