Former DGP (law and order) TP Senkumar approached the Central Administrative Tribunal on Thursday, claiming that the government has violated the Kerala Police Act and All India Service Rules over his removal.

He was on Tuesday removed from the position and was given the post of Police Housing and Construction Corporation MD.

In the petition, he pointed out that the government did not provide a clear explanation for his removal.

"The observation that people are dissatisfied with the police is not true and what has happened in my case is not transfer, but demotion," Senkumar was quoted as saying.

Reports say that the tribunal will consider the petition on Tuesday and send notices to both the centre and state government based on Senkumar’s petition. DGP Loknath Behera will be sent a notice through a messenger.
