KOCHI: Circle Inspector Navaz, who had grabbed headlines, after he fled his home due to alleged mental harassment by his superior officer, turned up at Kochi Commissioner’s office police station and reportedly told the Commissioner Vijay Sakhare that he had no issues with tainted ACP P S Suresh Kumar.
Interestingly, Suresh Kumar also reached the office at that time and echoed the opinion of Nawaz when he met Sakhare. It is said that both police officers came out of the Commissioner’s office, joining their hands. Both are supposed to take charge in Mattancherry itself. But before that, Sakhare told both of them that if they couldn’t work together he could transfer them again.
As soon as both chose to take the path of compromise, Sakhare had no other option but to appoint them in Mattancherry itself.
The decision was also influenced by the inquiry conducted by DCP Poonkuzhali in connection with the disappearance of Navaz.
Navaz had fled Kochi after he had a run-in with Suresh Kumar over wireless set. According to his family he had been missing since Thursday morning.
In the search conducted thereafter, Navaz was found at Karur in Tamil Nadu. After returning home, he told media that he had left home as he wanted peace of mind. “I needed some food for my soul. I couldn’t find solace in drugs or alcohol. Sometime after leaving home I decided that I would never kill myself…”
