The News Minute | October 31, 2014 | 09:15 am IST  Following an examination of a naval 'whistleblower' in Kochi by a government psychiatrist which revealed that the officer had no mental abnormalities, the Kerala High Court on Thursday ordered the transfer of the officer from a psychiatric ward of a naval hospital to a government facility, states a report by The Times of India.  Sunil Kumar Sahu, a naval shipwright artificer of INS Kattabomman, Tirunelveli, had alleged that he was being held against his will at a Kochi hospital by the navy, allegedly because he leveled charges of corruption against his commanding officers. He was allegedly taken into custody almost a week ago on the instructions of his commanding officers at the naval base in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, and shifted to Kochi for “medical treatment” as he was "mentally unsound". Sahi had earlier told The News Minute, “I have been forcefully kept here, I can’t say anything more than that.” The navy denied the allegations.
